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.

Green-Wood’s popularity helped inspire the creation of public parks, including New York City’s Central and Prospect Parks.
