Since 2016, Neela Wickremesinghe, The Robert A. and Elizabeth Rohn Jeffe Director of Restoration and Preservation at Green-Wood, and two assistants have restored hundreds of mausoleums and monuments in the Cemetery. Join Neela and Green-Wood Historian Jeff Richman, for a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to preserve and safeguard these invaluable treasures, and how marble, brownstone, limestone, zinc, and granite each present their own set of unique challenges for restoration.
