Ghosts and Gargoyles: Haunted Secrets of the National Cathedral at Washington National Cathedral on Monday, October 30th, 2017

It’s Halloween Season!

Where better to learn of the scary creatures of the National Capital than at the National Cathedral – where the Gargoyles are ready to come alive!

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 of the cathedral’s history as only someone who knows the building intimately can tell it. In addition to an exciting general history of the Cathedral, Clift will tell us of the many mysteries of the gargoyles and unknown spooky stories of the cathedral that are unknown the most D.C. residents. You may never look at this landmark the same way again.

Afterwards, we will lead any interested to a local bar or restaurant for an optional reception (drinks and food at your own expense).

NEW MEETING LOCATION: At the corner of Wisconsin Avenue and Massachusetts Avenue. ( NOT AT THE CATHEDRAL main entrance, as originally specified.)

NEW MEETING TIME: 7:15 PM (not 7:00 PM)
