Founded in 1838 as a rural cemetery in Kings County, New York (now Greenwood Heights, Brooklyn), the Green-Wood Cemetery lies several blocks southwest of Prospect Park, between Park Slope, Windsor Terrace, Kensington, and Sunset Park. Green-Wood is 478 spectacular acres of hills, valleys, glacial ponds and paths, throughout which exists one of the largest outdoor collections of 19th- and 20th-century statuary and mausoleums. The cemetery was declared a National Historic Landmark in 2006.
