Hidden History Stroll: Walking Tour of The Evergreens Cemetery

April 20 @ 10:00 am - 1:25 pm


Come with us as we explore the winding paths of historic The Evergreens Cemetery on a walking tour led by James Henry. We will visit the gravesites of notable residents — who reflect the racial and religious diversity of New York City — including artists, actors, musicians and entertainers as well as some controversial personalities. We will learn about Victorian funerary symbols and styles as well as secret societies and their mysterious memorials. The tour will also include a trip inside our normally ‘off-limits’ Receiving Vault as well as other surprises.

Please note this is a walking tour with moderately hilly terrain; wear sturdy shoes. The tour is not wheelchair-accessible.

The tour will take place weather permitting; if the event is cancelled attendees will be emailed ahead of time and the cancellation will be posted on our website, Eventbrite and Facebook page.

Meet at the main gate at 1629 Bushwick Avenue. Registration is appreciated but not required.

$10 suggested donation, payable in cash at the event.
