TAKE A SPIRITED STROLL THROUGH GREEN-WOOD

Nov 1, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

| Walking tour is $20; $15 for members of the Green-Wood Historic Fund and members of the Brooklyn Historical Society.

Get into the autumnal mood and enjoy a cool, crisp day exploring Green-Wood on Sunday, November 1, 2015. This fall walking tour, an annual favorite, features tales of murder, mayhem, spirits and the utterly bizarre. Green-Wood Historian Jeff Richman will lead this spirited stroll through the 478 acres of in this National Historic Landmark amid the beautiful fall foliage.  The tour will include a visit inside the Catacombs, usually closed to the public; plus other unusual and intriguing sites including a stop at the final resting place of the Fox family — founders of Spiritualism; the gravesite of George Washington’s personal dentist, coincidentally named Dr. Greenwood; and the monument to the Wizard of Oz, Frank Morgan.  The tour will also feature the gravesites of George Catlin, the finest artist of American Indian portraiture; singer, songwriter and actor Paul Jabarra, most noted for writing the disco hits Last Dance, Enough is Enough, It’s Raining Men and others; Bill “the Butcher” Poole, the model for the Daniel Day-Lewis character in Gangs of New York; contemporary artistic genius Jean-Michel Basquiat; and more.
