Details

The Washington National Cathedral is one of Washington’s most magnificent and stunning structures. Although the foundation stone was laid in 1907, it was not until September 29, 1990, exactly 83 years after ground was broken, that the final stone was set in place.


This walk tells the story of one 20th –Century Greek-born sculptor and artist, Constantine Seferlis, who devoted nearly 20 years to carving the stone that brought the National Cathedral to life. Led by Seferlis’ son, Clift, a stone carver in his own right, you will walk the beautiful grounds and hear the cathedral’s history as only someone who knows the building intimately can tell it.


After the tour we will offer an optional social reception (with food and drinks at your own expense) at a local establishment.
