The NYG&B is hosting a walking tour of beautiful Woodlawn Cemetery. First opened in 1863, it is located in the Bronx at Webster Avenue & East 233rd Street. It is the final home of many of New York City's historic figures such as Admiral David G. Farragut; author Herman Melville; abolitionist and women's rights activist Elizabeth Cady Stanton; and journalist Joseph Pulitzer. 

We will be led on a 1.5 hour tour by NYG&B member and Woodlawn historian Susan Olsen followed by a workshop on how to use the cemetery databases. Registration is limited. Click here to register online.
