Green-Wood isnâ€™t wanting for extraordinary and monumental tombs, but many of its most remarkable residents lay buried under unmarked, modest, or sunken stones. Itâ€™s no wonder that visitors spend so much time looking for graves that are often easy to miss! Youâ€™ll learn about some of Green-Woodâ€™s lesser-knownâ€”but equally fascinatingâ€”monuments across our 478 acres. Highlights will include suffragist Elizabeth Tilton, whose stone is marked simply as â€śGrandmother;â€ť Robert â€śLittle Dougieâ€ť Spedden, a child survivor of the Titanic; and teenage military cadet Andrew Culver Jr., whose marble gravestone is one of the Cemeteryâ€™s most underrated gems.
While we canâ€™t actually bring the bar or the drinks to you, we can offer some history on tap! Bring your own beverageâ€“why not try our recommended cocktail of the eveningâ€“and raise a glass to the past as we stay connected through our latest series, History Happy Hour.
