Discover Green-Wood’s furry and feathered permanent residents! As religious motifs or cryptic symbols, animals are prominently featured on many of the Cemetery’s grand Victorian monuments and mausoleums. Learn their significance and visit the graves of the few animals that are buried alongside their owners at Green-Wood, including such pets as Little Dace, Trilby, and Rex; and a horse that served in the Union Army cavalry.

$25 / $20 for members
