American Aristocrats

Short on time? Make the most of it and “meet” the crème de la crème on this one-hour lantern tour!

The Gilded Age began after the Civil War and ended around 1900. It was a time of tremendous industrialization and rapid economic growth. Railroads were built to connect the East Coast with the West, kerosene replaced whale oil and candles to light people’s homes, and steel production changed city skylines forever.

Meet some of the American Aristocrats who shaped our country with their ambitious visions and amassed sizable fortunes in the process. You’ll visit the beautiful monuments of Henry Villard, William Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, and other interesting folks during this one-hour lantern tour in the north end of the cemetery.
