Secrets in Stone

November 10, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

There is a secret language at Green-Wood that’s etched upon gravestones and monuments:  cemetery symbology. On this eye-opening walking tour, visitors will learn the meaning of long forgotten, and now cryptic, motifs, including the inverted torch, clasped hands, and an hourglass with wings, amongst others. Expert tour guide Allison Meier will share fascinating trivia about Victorian-era funerary practices and rites along the way.

Comfortable footwear is recommended.
