Presbyterian Cemetery


Eager to learn more about an important part of OPMH’s unique legacy? Join Dave Heiby, Superintendent of the Presbyterian Cemetery and lifelong OPMH member for a fascinating tour of the historic grounds.

We’ll start in the sanctuary, then proceed to the Wilkes Street grounds and learn about many historic people buried or connected with the grounds. Highlights will include:

  • The Female Stranger’s grave;
  • The grave of Wilmer McLean, whose houses were involved in the beginning and ending of the Civil War;
  • George Washington’s pallbearers;
  • The reason we have the Star-Spangled Banner;
  • Pursuers of John Wilkes Booth;
  • A federal cemetery older then Arlington; and
  • Omar Bradley’s personal secretary.

The tour will last around 90 minutes, so wear comfortable walking shoes.

Please sign up below so we can plan accordingly; thanks!
