History Happy Hour: Forever Young — The Canda Monument
Tuesday, June 30, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Life after death takes on a new meaning when discussing the Charlotte Canda monument and the cult fascination that has gripped Green-Wood’s visitors since it was erected. Often the poster child for Green-Wood in early guidebooks from the mid-1800s, the Canda gravesite is exemplary not only for its ornate decoration, but also for the tragic story it tells. Join us for our first-ever History Happy Hour as we dig into the Cemetery’s archives and historical collections to explore the monument’s beautiful design as well as investigate the story behind Green-Wood’s “It Girl.”
$5/Free for members. While we can’t actually bring the bar or the drinks to you, we can offer some history on tap! Bring your own beverage–why not try our recommended cocktail of the evening–and raise a glass to the past as we stay connected through our latest series, History Happy Hour.
This History Happy Hour’s suggested drink accompaniment is a Shirley Temple. On the day of the program, participants will receive a recipe along with a Zoom link and access code.
