Founded in 1838 as one of America's first rural cemeteries, Green-Wood preserves a fine collection of 19th and 20th century statuary and mausoleums. During the 19th century, the cemetery became a popular tourist attraction and helped to inspire the creation of public parks. Many prominent Americans are buried here, including Civil War generals, baseball legends, politicians, artists, entertainers, and inventors. Today, Green-Wood continues to offer visitors the chance to explore its picturesque grounds and impressive monuments.
