From musical programs to honey-making workshops; tree-pruning classes to art installations, Green-Wood turns learning into enlightenment.
Green-Wood’s historical holdings of artifacts and archives are a treasure trove for family researchers, genealogists, and New York historians alike.
Across its core feature categories of art, history, and nature, Green-Wood sustains a deep and abiding commitment to preservation and restoration.
Seven-time Emmy award-winning documentary scriptwriter, historian, and author, Geoffrey Ward, received The 2016 DeWitt Clinton Award for Excellence. Alongside his collaborator Ken Burns, Mr. Ward is responsible for some of the most iconic documentaries of all time, including The Civil War; Baseball; Prohibition; The Statue of Liberty; and The War.
Mr. Ward is a great friend of Green-Wood. Included among his 17 books is the critically acclaimed “A Disposition to Be Rich: Ferdinand Ward, the Greatest Swindler of the Gilded Age,” about his own scandalous great-grandfather, who lies in permanent rest in Green-Wood.
