Green-Wood: Book Signing, Trolley Tour Recounting Bannerman Castle’s Curious Past

A mysterious, imposing castle-like fortress is perched on an island in the middle of the Hudson River near West Point.

On Saturday, April 12, from 1:00pm to 3:00pm, Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn will host Wes and Barbara Gottlock, authors of the book Bannerman Castle (available for purchase and signing) and official Bannerman tour guides, as they detail the history of this remarkable site which includes Green-Wood ‘permanent resident,’ Francis Bannerman.

After the presentation, a brief tour of the cemetery will take place aboard the Green-Wood Trolley including a stop at the Bannerman family plot.

The talk is free. The trolley tour is $20; $15 for members of the Green-Wood Historic Fund and the Brooklyn Historical Society. Reservations recommended. For more information or reservations, call 718-210-3080 or visit
