SHORTEST DAY, LONGEST NIGHT

December 18, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Many people lay low for the winter, but Green-Wood is embracing the start of the season with its last public program of 2016. On Sunday, December 18th, Green-Wood is celebrating the coming of winter just two days before the solstice with a walking tour and seasonal bites. Visitors will have the chance to learn about the Cemetery’s rich history and view the beautiful Himalayan pines, which ancient people believed had magical powers to stay green and withstand winter. Visitors will also see the final resting places of many famous residents before ending at the historic chapel for an outdoor campfire with warm refreshments, holiday treats, and a great decoration to take home. Please dress warmly.

The walking tour is $30; $25 for members of the Green-Wood Historic Fund and members of the Brooklyn Historical Society. Reservations are recommended.
