(Sold Out) 1 p.m. Designing Green-Wood: New York’s First Rural Greenspace

Saturday, April 19, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Green-Wood owes much of its splendor to the genius of its original designer – landscape architect David Bates Douglass. The twists and turns of Green-Wood’s 40 miles of pathways purposefully create visual surprises around each bend. In 1838, Douglass eschewed the long vistas of unobstructed open space, in favor of rolling hills and meandering, serpentine walkways.

Join Superintendent of Grounds, Art Presson, in Green-Wood’s Historic Chapel for a talk on David Bates Douglass’s intent and original design. Then board the trolley for a tour of what’s changed, what’s stayed the same, and how the Green-Wood landscape has evolved over 175 years.

1 p.m. Mausoleums: Little-Known Works of Great Architects Trolley Tour

Saturday, May 17, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

There are over 700 mausoleums dotting the Green-Wood landscape, and although they are much smaller in scale than the great buildings of New York, they are not lacking for architectural significance and merit. Scores of prominent New Yorkers are buried in Green-Wood, and their final resting places are no less opulent than their residences were during their lives. And many times, the same architects who were designing impressive homes in New York City were also turning to Green-Wood to build within these 478 acres. Join expert tour guide Ruth Edebohls for a look at the fabulous architectural designs hidden within Green-Wood’s rolling hills. You’ll visit structures by Ernest Flagg, Richard Upjohn and Son, Stanford White and more.
