Tours

Because of the wide range of historical significance and natural beauty the Evergreens Cemetery has to offer, tours can be tailored from the very broad to the very specific. Here are some of the themed walking tours on offer:

  • General Interest Tour, focusing on the unique characters and characteristics of the Evergreens, with visits to landmarks such as Reed’s Tomb.
  • Military and War Tour, focusing on the highlights from the Revolutionary War and the Civil War, up to the present day.
  • Brooklyn-centric Tour, focusing on the role the Evergreens and its inhabitants have played in the history of the neighborhood.
  • Entertainers and Other Famous Folks Tour, focusing on the great performers who now reside at the Evergreens, like Bojangles, Winsor McCay, and Lester Young.

If you have a group that is interested in taking one of these tours, or a custom tour that combines these interests, please contact us.
