Eternal Menagerie

Discover Green-Wood’s furry and feathered permanent residents! As religious motifs or cryptic symbols, animals are prominently featured on many of the Cemetery’s grand Victorian-era monuments and mausoleums. Learn their meaning while also visiting the graves of the few animals that are buried alongside their owners, including such pets as Little Dace, Trilby, and Rex, and a horse that served in the Union Army cavalry.
