Archtober Event

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