Sunday, May 29, 2011
On the last Sunday of each month (starting January 2010) there will be a historic trolley tour at Green-Wood. Similar to our Wednesday trolley tours (held each week, rain or shine), tours last approximately two hours and feature the beauty of Green-Wood’s grounds, the Cemetery’s history, its bird life, the most fascinating tales of its permanent residents, views of Manhattan’s skyline, The Green-Wood Historic Fund’s Civil War Project and its preservation program, and more. The trolley is heated, air conditioned, and enclosed.
This will be a Discover Green-Wood tour. Click here for more information on Green-Wood’s rotation of three different tours.

Green-Wood’s Wednesday Trolley tour guide, Marge Raymond, fell in love with Green-Wood Cemetery 25 years ago as a birdwatcher and naturalist. She brings to her tours her enthusiasm and passion for Green-Wood’s famous residents, its history, trees and animals. Marge, a professional singer, has been a volunteer since 2002 with The Green-Wood Historic Fund’s Civil War Project and has helped to staff The Historic Fund’s information and sales cart since its inception. She has been known to break into an occasional song during her tours.
