Tombstone Tuesday

Green-Wood Cemetery



My sister and her friend spent a Saturday afternoon at Green-Wood cemetery and sent me some photo’s.
 
Green-Wood Cemetery is located in Brooklyn, NY on 478 acres of hills, valleys and ponds, was founded in 1838 and was once considered to be the fashionable place to be buried. 

Green-Wood Cemetery even has an online burial search that goes back to 1850. To learn more about the cemetery or search their online burial site  go to Green-Wood Cemetery
