As more smoke than usual poured out of smokestacks in the cemetery’s crematorium, photographer Tom Hilton chose to focus his camera lens on the spring blooms at Green-Wood. In wordless tribute, we offer those here, as the dogwoods, redbuds and other beautiful flora thrive in this rare National Landmark treasure.

Incorporated in 1838, The Green-Wood Cemetery stretches across 478 pastoral acres in Brooklyn and boasts extraordinary works of nineteenth- and twentieth-century sculpture, statuary and architecture, and is home to thousands of historic figures. Green-Wood has been designated a National Historic Landmark by the United States Department of the Interior.
