EXPLORE BEHIND CLOSED DOORS AT GREEN-WOOD’s POPULAR MAUSOLEUM TOUR
Oct 1, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm$25
Back by popular demand, Green-Wood opens over a dozen of its most remarkable mausoleums for an afternoon of self-guided exploration and discovery. Step past stunning wrought iron gates into architectural gems, as well as the catacombs (a perennial favorite), normally closed to the general public.
Bring your sneakers and walk the route at your leisure. A handy map, provided at the main entrance, will mark the locations of each of the mausoleums. At each of the “open doors,” docents will explain family histories and showcase memorabilia illuminating the lives of some of our most famous “permanent residents.” Visitors will discover the Egyptian Revival tomb of John Taylor Johnston, an early president of the Metropolitan Museum of Art; the ornately tiled ceiling of the Hoagland mausoleum – home to a Baking Powder mogul; the imposing mausoleum of the Dewey’s, a family of early American settlers; and many more.
Don’t miss one of Green-Wood’s most popular events!
