1. Historic Chapel Marker
Inscription.  
In the early 20th century, Green-Wood’s trustees decided that it was time to build a chapel on the grounds. So they held a competition, and the top American architects submitted their plans. The winner was the prominent firm of Warren and Wetmore, which also designed Grand Central Terminal and the New York Yacht Club. The Historic Chapel was built of Indiana limestone and dedicated in 1911. The Chapel is now a multi-use facility: book talks, movies, theatrical performances, weddings and exhibitions all are hosted here.
 
Erected by The Historic Green-Wood Fund.
