Brooklyn by Name

March 17, 2018, 11:00am1:00pm


Meet the nineteenth-century luminaries interred at Green-Wood whose names now grace parks, streets, and subway stations throughout Brooklyn. Discover how city dwellers like Hezekiah Beers, Henry Evelyn Pierrepont, Henry Havemeyer, Peter and Abraham Schermerhorn, and Teunis Garret Bergen were influential enough to become permanent fixtures in the borough of Kings.


$20 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $25 for non-members.


Green-Wood trolley tours are fully accessible and ADA compliant. In order to accommodate a wheelchair or other mobility device on the trolley, advance arrangements must be made. Please call (718) 210-3080, ext. 1. Please note that portions of the tour take place outside the trolley and may require exiting the vehicle on multiple occasions. Please contact the Historic Fund for more information.
