The Classic Evening Lantern Tour
Soak up the history of this famous cemetery by the light of kerosene lanterns! It’s like stepping back in time as we visit some of the most impressive residents of the north end of the grounds, including William Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, John Dustin Archbold and others resting in peace in the north end. As this is only a one-hour tour, you’ll need to visit during the day to see Washington Irving’s grave.
COVID-19 POLICY: Masks must be worn at all times by everyone on tour without exception for the safety of all guests and our staff. If you are unable to wear a mask for medical reasons or have a very young child in tow, we regret being unable to welcome you this year. Refusal to wear a mask properly will result in being asked to leave the grounds.
