A Gleam in His Eye Trolley Tour

November 5, 2016, 10:00am12:00pm

A Gleam in His Eye calendar image

David Bates Douglass’s master plan for Green-Wood’s landscape pre-dated Central and Prospect Parks and gave 19th-century Brooklynites and New Yorkers a place to escape from the urban grind. A green scape ahead of its time, the cemetery winds its way through rolling hills and glacial ponds with each twist and turn. Art Presson, Green-Wood’s Vice-President of Design and Landscape, will lead visitors through Douglass’s creation and how it has evolved after nearly two centuries.

$15 for members of Green-Wood and BHS/$20 for non-members.
