Walking Tour of Greenwood Cemetery

with Ron Romano

May
25

Next session: May 25th, 2024

$15 More Info

Greenwood Cemetery is a hidden gem! Established in the mid-1800s when other “garden” cemeteries arose, Greenwood offers a wide variety of gravestone materials, monument forms, symbolism, and epitaphs from the nineteenth century. Cemetery historian Ron Romano will share the best that Greenwood has to offer, pausing to visit the graves of some who were lost at sea, taken down by disease, died by suicide, and even murder. The stroll along the winding pathways of this pleasant burial space will take about 90 minutes. Two identical tours will run the same day, at noon and again at 2 PM.
