Cubans at Green-Wood
Saturday, September 16, 2017, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Since it opened in 1838, Green-Wood has been the resting place of myriad immigrant communities who made a new homes for themselves and their families in New York City. To honor this rich legacy, join Professor Lisandro Perez and Green-Wood Historian Jeff Richman for a special trolley tour exploring famed Cuban immigrants of the 19th century who count among the cemetery’s permanent residents. You will explore the mausoleum of sugar planter and refiner Miguel de Aldama, who sought to overthrow Spanish control of Cuba, and that of the Acea family, one of the wealthiest coffee-planting families on the island.
Along the tour, your guides will share stories of politics, commercial enterprise, and tragedy relating to Cubans interred here.
$20 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $25 for non-members
