1 p.m. Northern Exposure Trolley Tour

August 18, 2013, 1:00pm3:00pm


Take a walk on the Northern side on this trolley tour with veteran guide Ruth Edebohls. Some of the most fascinating mausoleums and monuments in Green-Wood are not necessarily the ones with the most famous names.

On this tour of the Northern section of Green-Wood’s 478 acres, hear the stories of the Father of Baseball, a pioneering embalmer, the scandalous wife of an equally scandalous Civil War general, the “best woman who ever lived,” Charles Ebbets, Johnny Torrio, Elmer Sperry, Townsend Harris, F.A.O. Schwarz and more.

A premier tourist attraction of the 19th century, Green-Wood today still has the power to attract and amaze visitors with its beauty, grandeur and history.

$10 for members of Green-Wood/$15 for nonmembers
