Take 2014’s most exciting and unusual “house tour” when Green-Wood opens some of its most opulent mausoleums, very rarely open to the public, for an exclusive view inside. This special look into Green- Wood’s distinct architecture includes the grand mausoleum of piano maker Henry Steinway, the rather unusual tomb of the ultra-wealthy Stephen Whitney, as well as the thirty-room Catacombs, built in the 1850s. An array of 19th-century mausoleums will be opened on Saturday and Sunday as guides and docents in period costume offer a glimpse into the lives of the people who now rest in these interesting and ornate structures. Guests may walk the route themselves, or use the Green-Wood trolley’s “Hop on, hop off” service between 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on both Saturday, October 4, 2014 & Sunday, October 5, 2014.
