Secret Mausoleum Club: The Third Gathering

The most secret gatherings in New York City have been under lock-and-key for centuries, until now.

A enchanting evening urges you to reflect upon life, fragile as glass.
Through beautiful stained glass and winged creatures,
set your gaze upon the windows of the past,
towards the twilight of the last century. 

A peaceful hush falls over Green-Wood’s grounds each night as the gates close. It is in that near-darkness when the members of the Secret Mausoleum Club congregate, while centuries-old monuments stand guard over those laid to permanent rest within. Following the success of the annual Into The Veil festival, Atlas Obscura and Green-Wood Cemetery are collaborating this year to present The Secret Mausoleum Club, opening Green-Wood’s historic gates and select mausoleums for an extraordinary series of intimate and immersive after-hours experiences.

Each exclusive evening has been specially curated to celebrate legends, legacies, and lore, and each meeting will feature a unique mausoleum with programming inspired by the surroundings. Clues shared before each event will help guests decipher the night’s theme. Take in an inspiring performance and a historic persona or two. An evening of surprising discoveries awaits.
