History Happy Hour: Hidden Green-Wood Part 2

November 2, 2021 , 6:00pm 7:00pm

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. We’ll deepdive into the monuments of Elizabeth Gloucester, whose fortune helped fund John Brown’s raid on Harpers Ferry; Charles M. Murphy, the cyclist who raced alongside a moving train; and Fanny Palmer, the prolific (yet, often overlooked!) artist of Currier and Ives.

$9 / $4 for members. A Zoom link and recipe will be emailed the day before the program.

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.
