Green-Wood's Great Women: Mother's Day Trolley Tour
Saturday, May 11, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM (EDT)
Join us before Mother’s Day to celebrate some of the most colorful and influential women of the 19th and early 20th centuries, buried right here in Green-Wood. Matilda Tone, wife of the Irish patriot; pioneering doctors Susan McKinney Steward and Mary Jacobi; abolitionist Abigail Hopper Gibbons; and actresses Laura Keene and Kate Claxton rest here along with the more notorious Lola Montez and Elizabeth Tilton.
This year, we’ll visit some newly uncovered stories of fascinating women – like Isabella Goodwin, the first woman detective of the NYPD. We’ll also enjoy the visual delights of Green-Wood, its trees and ponds and its sculpture and buildings by the leading artists and architects of their time, all in a setting of remarkable springtime beauty.
Trolley tour is led by veteran Green-Wood tour guide Ruth Edebohls.
$10 for Green-Wood Historic Fund members and $15 for non-members.
