Close in proximity to Eastern Market, it is a bit of a hidden gem. Since it was one of the first things established in the area, we learned the actual land was never touched by a bulldozer; all intact since the beginning.
The grounds are lovely and probably nice to just walk anytime. But, we got a lot out of our tour with Steve Hammond, who does the monthly Civil War tour. Due to all the figures we heard about connected to the Lincoln assassination - I wish I had done the Ford's Theatre museum right before to be reminded of the people! But, so many interesting stories! And wonderful to see Sousa, Hoover, others too.
