Geocaching

DC Hidden Ringers is a geocaching series that calls to attention the often-overlooked historical bells suspended above our nation’s capital. Sentinels in bronze, the bells toll a history of our nation: the jubilation of independence, the pain of civil war, the sacredness of community, and the resounding hope of tomorrow. Many of these bells have fallen silent over the years. Until now! On New Year's Day, we'll be kicking-off this tour with a small group of fellow bell lovers as we rediscover Washington’s sound canopy.
