CELEBRATE WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH WITH A TROLLEY TOUR
FEATURING SOME OF GREEN-WOOD’S MOST INFLUENTIAL WOMEN
Join us in celebration of Women’s History Month by honoring some of Green-Wood’s most
influential women of the 19th and early 20th centuries. The trolley tour, led by veteran tour guide Ruth Edebohls, will feature the engaging stories of pioneering doctors Susan McKinney Steward and Mary Jacobi; abolitionist Abigail Hopper Gibbons; 19th century actresses Laura Keene, who was on stage in Ford’s Theatre when President Lincoln was assassinated; Kate Claxton, who, though badly burned, survived the deadly Brooklyn Theater fire of 1876; and Isabella Goodwin, first female detective in the NYPD; among many others.
Trolley tour is $25; $20 for members of the Green-Wood Historic Fund and members of the Brooklyn Historical Society. Reservations are recommended.
