Ladies of Green-Wood

Join us on the day before Mother’s Day to celebrate some of the most colorful and influential women of the 19th and early 20th centuries who are buried here. Matilda Tone, wife of the Irish patriot; pioneering doctors Susan McKinney Steward and Mary Jacobi; abolitionist Abigail Hopper Gibbons; and actresses Laura Keene and Kate Claxton rest here along with the more notorious Lola Montez and Elizabeth Tilton. We’ll also enjoy the visual delights of Green-Wood, its trees and ponds and its sculpture and buildings by the leading artists and architects of their time, all in a setting of remarkable springtime beauty. Tour is led by veteran Green-Wood tour guide Ruth Edebohls. Walk may be hilly and strenuous—wear good walking shoes.

$10 for Green-Wood Historic Fund members / $15 for non-members.  Reservations strongly recommended. Click here to purchase tickets online.
