Happily Never After

Valentine's Day at Green-Wood Cemetery

$25 – $30

If you prefer to skip the flowers & chocolate hearts for something slightly more mysterious this Valentine’s Day – treat the special someone in your life to an exploration of Green-Wood. Throughout this darker side-valentines’s event you will hear tales of the lovesick and the heartbroken, as well as tawdry details of dramatic—and doomed—affairs. You’ll learn about star-crossed Victorian lovers, Charlotte Canda and Charles Jarrett; Henry Ward Beecher’s scandalous affair with Elizabeth Tilton; the tragic death of Theodore Roosevelt’s wife on Valentine’s Day; and more.

Attendees meet at the Main Entrance Gate by Fifth Avenue and 25th Street.

$30 / $25 for members. All walking tours traverse hilly and at times uneven terrain. Comfortable footwear is suggested.
