    I occasionally spend time in the area and finally was able to spend time here at the Alexandria National Cemetery. I enjoyed reading the history of this cemetery and the history of the national cemetery system (was not aware!).

    The grounds are solemn and well kept. My thoughts and prayers to all the service members here and their families. I'm glad I was able to spend some time here, learn about this place, and dwell on so many people's sacrifices.

    I was visiting the African American Heritage Park when I noticed an Arlington-like cemetery beyond the trees… I made my way over there and was blessed by what I saw. Alexandria National Cemetery… I'd never heard of it. Beautifully landscaped solemn grounds memorializing those who sacrificed for this country.

    Alexandria National Cemetery is a historic cemetery established in the mid-1800s and maintained by the government. The gravestones look similar to those found at the famous Arlington National Cemetery.

    What's interesting about the Alexandria National Cemetery is that there are other cemeteries right behind it with older history and gravestones. Together, they make a peaceful place for a stroll to reflect on life.

    It’s beautiful. There isn’t much I can say except there is so much history in this one spot. It’s peaceful, well maintained and I enjoyed reading about the history. If you want some quite time wonder and read about all who they there. Just beautiful.

    A quite, clean, peaceful and well maintained place to honor those that made the ultimate sacrifice. It's a nice, smaller alternative to Arlington cemetery. It's good for a quick stop with plenty of Street parking.

    Fireflies at sunset, it's a beautiful and surreal place. Reminds me of a combination of The Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean.

    Clean, quiet and beautifully maintained, the cemetery is in the western portion of the Wilkes Street Cemetery complex. It's a collection of cemeteries dating as part back to 1751. If your into local history do a web search for the complex and Old Town Alexandra history to download a walking tour. It's a few blocks from the subway and boarders the US patent office where there is a tiny modern museum/exhibition space.

    Clean, quiet, peaceful, and intimate. Is not busy or commercial like Arlington National.
