Congressional Cemetery

Interesting article in the latest National Trust Preservation magazine about the revitalization of Washington D.C.’s Congressional Cemetery. Among other efforts to reclaim the forgotten space the neighborhood association converted the still active burial ground into a members only dog park. Not sure how the NPS feels about giving up park space for puppies, but it seems to me like a good idea for fostering a sense of community and ownership at some of the smaller CWDW sites.
