Ford's Theatre

An iconic theatre, Ford's Theatre is recognized as the place where President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated on April 14th, 1865. A century later on January 1968, the theatre was reopened again for a performance after being under the management of numerous government organizations including the United States Department of War and National Park Service. Also found within the Ford's Theatre is a Lincoln Museum that displays artifacts from the assassination, including the gun Lincoln was shot with. Mementos from Lincoln's life are also on display. Across the street is Petersen House, the place where Lincoln died.

Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception

This basilica, the largest Roman Catholic church in the Western Hemisphere, was dedicated in 1959. The architecture of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception is a mix of Romanesque and Byzantine styles. The Great Upper Church boasts fantastic mosaics, stained glass windows and individual chapels. The lower level Crypt Church is smaller and darker, but equally impressive in atmosphere and ornamentation. The basilica has a bookstore, gift shop and cafeteria.

Islamic Mosque and Cultural Center

The largest mosque in the United States, the Islamic Center is built with white limestone and has a 162-foot (49-meter) high minaret. Within, stained-glass windows and fine Persian carpets contribute to the mosque's ornate and lavish artistry. In the Center complex, only the mosque is open to the public. Women must wear headscarves and visitors wearing shorts are not admitted. Tours are offered daily.

St. John's Church

Because of its close proximity to the White House, St John's has become known as the "Church of the Presidents." In fact, since its establishment in 1815, every chief executive has attended services here; some on a regular basis. Pew 54 has been designated the "Presidents Pew." It was designed by Henry LaTrobe, who also did the restoration of the U.S. Capitol and White House after the War of 1812. In the 1870s, the plain glass windows were gradually replaced with exquisitely crafted stained glass depicting presidents and other notable parishioners.

National Presbyterian Church

The National Presbyterian Church is a landmark institution in Washington DC, with origins dating back to the 18th Century. Notable personalities to have visited the church include people like President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Mother Teresa and Frederick Douglass. Besides holding traditional and contemporary service, the church has several active ministries. The best known is the Music ministry, and people from all over come to listen to the beautiful concerts performed by notable ensembles as well as solo performers. An extremely popular concert venue, the church provides an incredible atmosphere and acoustics, perfect for musical performances. Often, concerts are free of charge, making for a perfect opportunity to experience music in a unique setting.
