Celebrate the fall season with tales of murder, mayhem, spirits and ghosts on our annual autumn tours led by Green-Wood’s historian Jeff Richman. Visit the graves of The Wizard of Oz, George Washington’s favorite dentist, the founders of Spiritualism, and many more. The tour includes a visit to the Catacombs, usually closed to the public.

Get into the autumnal mood and enjoy a cool, crisp day among 478 acres of beautiful fall foliage. This is a very, very popular tour, so please arrive early.

Walking tours: $15 for Green-Wood Historic Fund members / $20 for non-members. Reservations recommended.
