Keeping 478 acres of mausoleums and monuments upright and in tip-top shape is no small task, but since arriving at Green-Wood in 2016, Neela Wickremesinghe, the Robert A. and Elizabeth Rohn Jeffe Director of Restoration and Preservation at Green-Wood, has risen to the challenge. Along with her two-person team, they have rolled up their sleeves day in and day out to ensure that the Cemetery’s greatest treasures are preserved for generations to come. Join Neela and Green-Wood Historian Jeff Richman, for a behind-the-scenes look at her team’s most recent—and ground-breaking—restoration projects. You’ll get the inside scoop on the massive restoration of the 1870 Garrison mausoleum, completed by a team of restoration technicians in training through the Bridge to Crafts Careers workforce development program!
