The Oak Hill Cemetery Historic Preservation Foundation offers guided tours for groups through one of our partnerships. As of 2019, we have partnered with DC By Foot to offer tours of our grounds. If you live in DC, you may have seen these friendly tour guides dressed in orange coats, guiding visitors and locals throughout the city. DC By Foot are tours not to be missed! Their group started in 2007 and they have over 57 years of combined experience! They were ranked number 1 for “Tours in Washington DC” on TripAdvisor.
Starting in late June 2023, DC By Foot tour guides will be adding Oak Hill Cemetery to their guided tours calendar. You will need to pre-register in advance for these tours.
Between April 2023 and June 2023, if you would like to book a private tour OR a group tour, please email us directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org, and our office will help to coordinate your request.
