Eternal Menagerie

Discover Green-Wood’s furry and feathered permanent residents! As religious motifs or cryptic symbols, animals are prominently featured on many of the Cemetery’s grand Victorian-era monuments and mausoleums. Learn their meaning while also visiting the graves of the few animals that are buried alongside their owners at Green-Wood, including pets such as Elias Howe’s family dog, Fannie, and her popular poem; the grave of the founder of the ASPCA, Henry Bergh; as well as a horse that served in the Union army cavalry.

Reservations are recommended. If the trolley tour is not sold out, walk-ups will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis.
