Not as important as Congressional Cemetery or Arlington Cemetery but this is a beautiful 19th century cemetery, with an impressive and beautiful High Gothic statuary. The most famous statue/tomb here is known to Washingtonians as ''Grief'', incorrectly, as the famous sculptor Saint-Gaudens gave it a less catchy title: ''The Mystery of the Hereafter and The Peace of God that Passeth Understanding''. The cemetery is 86 acres in size, so it will pay off to get a map from the cemetery office if you plan to look for anything in particular (''Grief'' is in Section E).
