SOS Guided Tours

Save Our Seminary conducts public guided tours of the National Park Seminary from March through November on the fourth Saturday of the month except in March, when the tour is the fourth Sunday.

While walking the property, the guides present the Seminary’s buildings, statues, and landscape features in their historical and social context. The stunning ballroom and other unique interior spaces are included in the tour.

Private group tours may also be arranged. The private tour fee is $5 per person, with a minimum of $100 for groups under twenty. For more information or to arrange a private tour, email or call 301-589-1715.
