History Happy Hour: Hidden Green-Wood

June 8, 2021 , 6:00pm 7:00pm

marble grave

Green-Wood isn’t wanting for extraordinary and monumental tombs, but many of its most remarkable residents lay buried under unmarked, modest, or sunken stones. It’s no wonder that visitors spend so much time looking for graves that are often easy to miss! You’ll learn about some of Green-Wood’s lesser-known—but equally fascinating—monuments across our 478 acres. Highlights will include suffragist Elizabeth Tilton, whose stone is marked simply as “Grandmother;” Robert “Little Dougie” Spedden, a child survivor of the Titanic; and teenage military cadet Andrew Culver Jr., whose marble gravestone is one of the Cemetery’s most underrated gems.

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.

$9 / $4 for members. A Zoom link and recipe will be in your confirmation email upon registration.
