Cathedral Spotlights: Presidents and Washington National Cathedral

Tuesday, October 27, 2020 | 4:00pm

The dream of a national cathedral dates to the earliest days of the United States, when President George Washington and architect Pierre L’Enfant imagined a “great church for national purposes.” A place for national celebration and national mourning, Washington National Cathedral has been a place for national figures, including U.S. Presidents, to connect with the people around the country. Discover presidential connections starting in 1893 with President Benjamin Harrison: which presidents marked significant moments of the Cathedral’s 83 years of construction and who had national prayer services or state funerals at the Cathedral.
