Remembering Hayden Wetzel

The Overbeck Project notes with sadness the passing of Hayden Wetzel, an extraordinary tour guide who has been described as a "touchstone for history" in the District of Columbia.

Over the years Hayden shared his extraordinary knowledge in two informative Overbeck lectures, one on Buzzard Point presented in 2017 and most recently in a 2022 lecture describing the intriguing historical life of farm animals on Capitol Hill. We are grateful for his many contributions to our city and to the Overbeck Project.
