"There's a good probability if you dig anywhere in DC that's been undisturbed you will uncover evidence of human remains," said Paul Sluby, genealogist and historian of DC's cemeteries. We at Curbed previously mapped all of the cemeteries in Washington, D.C., but now it's time to dig a little deeper with locations where cemeteries once were. What was once a crypt is now a metro station, a mall, or even an apartment complex. Thousands of bodies remain unearthed below developments, and people walk above these plots of land unknowingly, shopping for clothes or commuting to work.
