2023 Fall Workday: The Green-Wood Cemetery

September 30 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm


Join Preservation Alumni on Saturday, September 30, as we partner with The Green-Wood Cemetery for our annual Fall Workday!

Founded in 1838 and now a National Historic Landmark, Green-Wood was one of the first rural cemeteries in America. By the early 1860s it had earned an international reputation for its magnificent beauty and became the prestigious place to be buried, attracting 500,000 visitors a year, second only to Niagara Falls as the nation’s greatest tourist attraction.

Neela Wickremesinghe, HP Class of ’11 and Manager of Preservation and Restoration at Green-Wood, will guide us as we learn about their ongoing restoration projects and participate in the cleaning, resetting, and pointing of a section of the cemetery. Light refreshments will be provided.

This is a great opportunity to work hands-on with fellow alums and current students and see a beautiful and historic part of NYC. Come join us!  The event will be capped at 20 people.
