About St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Rock Creek Cemetery

Dating from 1719, the Cemetery is also Washington’s oldest cemetery and was designed as part of the rural cemetery movement first advocated by the architect Sir Christopher Wren in 1711. The burial ground in the churchyard’s urban space, with its natural 86-acre rolling landscape, functions as both cemetery and public park. This, the Cemetery’s famous residents, and stunning variety of sculptures and monuments make Rock Creek Cemetery a place of pilgrimage for people of all faiths.
