Open Doors

October 17, 2021 , 12:00pm 4:00pm

It’s back! One of Green-Wood’s most popular events returns with an afternoon exploring some of the cemetery’s most impressive and elaborate nineteenth-century mausoleums with exquisite stained glass and some curious surprises. Peek inside the elaborate gates of these stately stone structures to view stunning examples of Green-Wood’s distinct architecture. At each location, docents will offer a glimpse into the lives of the personalities who now rest in these opulent edifices. 

Please Note: This is a self-guided walking tour. Special maps with a recommended walking route are provided at check-in at Green-Wood’s main entrance (at 500 25th Street). Comfortable footwear is recommended as you will need to walk on hilly and at times uneven terrain. Check-in will be open 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM. 

$30/ $25 for members. There are no paper or e-tickets. Attendees will be checked in by name.
