Mount Auburn and Green-Wood Cemeteries: Their Historians in Conversation, Part 2
May 12, 2021 , 6:00pm – 7:00pm
Opening its gates in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1831, Mount Auburn was America’s first rural cemetery, providing the model for cemeteries across the country—including Green-Wood! The list of luminaries interred there includes painter Winslow Homer, reformer Dorothea Dix, poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and collector extraordinaire Isabella Steward Gardner. In this follow-up virtual program, Green-Wood Historian Jeff Richman will be joined by Meg L. Winslow, Mount Auburn’s curator of historical collections, to dig even deeper into the fascinating and intertwined histories of the two institutions. You’ll learn even more about these two great rural cemeteries and how they are being preserved for centuries to come.
You need not have attended Part 1 of this program to enjoy Part 2.
This conversation is part of our series of virtual programs about the history of Green-Wood and its permanent residents, Zooming in on History.
