GREEN-WOOD CEMETERY: THEN & NOW

Posted by awarner

Green-Wood’s expansive rolling hills, glacial ponds, and thousands of trees were the perfect setting

for pioneering photographers in the nineteenth century. Over the last twenty years, Green-Wood has collected hundreds of historic photographs which provide an invaluable tool in piecing together the Cemetery’s Victorian heritage. Join Green-Wood’s historian Jeff Richman for a visit to the locations where these remarkable photographs were taken and discover how the Cemetery has transformed in the last hundred years.
