May 6, 2017; 10:30 A.M. - 12:30 P.M.

Green-Wood is internationally recognized as one of the most beautiful and historic cemeteries in the world. Established in 1838, it is among a handful of cemeteries in the United States to have been honored as a National Historic Landmark. Green-Wood’s 570,000 “permanent residents” include many prominent Victorian artists, artisans and architects—including Louis Comfort Tiffany, John La Farge, Daniel D. Badger, James Bogardus, Eastman Johnson, William Merritt Chase and John George Brown, to name a few. Join cemetery president Richard J. Moylan and historian Jeff Richman for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of Green-Wood’s collection of drawings, paintings, documents and ephemera related to these and other influential figures interred there. A Trolley Tour of Green-Wood’s picturesque Victorian grounds led by the cemetery’s historian will follow.
