Rock Creek Cemetery is owned and maintained by St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Rock Creek Parish.


Rock Creek Cemetery dates back to 1719 when 100 acres of land was donated by Colonel John Bradford. In 1840, Congress passed an Act designating the ground as a public cemetery. In the early 20th Century, the church sold 14 acres to accommodate construction of New Hampshire Avenue, leaving today's total of 86 acres.
