Vice President Graves

This is our list of Vice President grave sites we have visited over the past eighteen years. There have been 14 Vice Presidents that eventually served as Presidents. Thus far we have visited 29 of the 41 Vice Presidential graves, which include those that became President. We didn't actively seek these out until our 2016 trip.

Thus far only one person has visited all sixty six Presidential and Vice Presidential grave sites. Kurt Deion has a website "Kurt's Historic Sites - Hands-on History" documenting the grave sites he and his dad visited. On August 5, 2015 he was interviewed by Brian Lamb on C-SPAN, and talked about his visits to the graves of presidents and vice presidents.
