This event is sold out. Click here to see our full events calendar.

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.

$15 for members of Green-Wood / $20 for nonmembers.

Funding generously provided by the New York State Council on the Arts. Green-Wood trolley tours are fully accessible and ADA compliant. Click here for our inclement weather policy.
