In-Depth Tour: Humor and Whimsy at Washington National Cathedral

Thursday, November 15, 2018 | 2:00pm

Come and explore humor and whimsy at Washington National Cathedral. Amid the majesty and grandeur of Gothic architecture are examples of amusing architectural details, puns, lighthearted carvings and stained glass cartoons. Together we will discover a doctor in an old time buggy racing after a stork, a story in stone about a Nantucket sleigh ride, a wrought iron gate that unexpectedly wiggles, a dentist drilling a cavity in the tusk of his walrus patient and so much more!
