Long after Green-Woods gates close to the public, explore its historic grounds under the cover of night. Youll visit some of the cemeterys most intriguing monuments, including the elaborate memorial to John Matthews (the Soda Fountain King), Charles Calverleys marble portrait of Precious Georgie, the formerly unmarked grave of William Poole (aka, Bill the Butcher), and Harvey Burdell whose famous murder in 1887 resulted in the criminal trial of the 19th Century.
A flashlight and comfortable shoes are recommended for this tour. We know its Halloween season, but please do not arrive in costume. Attendees in costume, face-paint, or masks will not be admitted.
$20 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $25 for non-members
