Happily Never After

Saturday, February 15, 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Event Navigation


As age-old muses for artists, writers, and philosophers, love and death have inspired great works of art and literature—but do you know where their influence and presence truly intertwine? At a cemetery!


Forget the box of chocolates and sappy card—treat the special someone in your life to an exploration of Green-Wood. Along the way you will hear tales of the lovesick and the heartbroken, as well as tawdry details of dramatic—and doomed—affairs. You’ll learn about star-crossed Victorian lovers, Charlotte Canda and Charles Jarrett; Henry Ward Beecher’s scandalous affair with Elizabeth Tilton; the tragic death of Theodore Roosevelt’s wife on Valentine’s Day; and more.


$20 for members of Green-Wood / $25 for non-members
