    The Green-Wood Cemetery has launched a series of virtual programs focusing on the stories behind the historic site, and this week you can get details on a soon-to-be-completed restoration project.

    While the cemetery’s historic chapel has been undergoing a major restoration to address masonry issues, its 41 stained glass windows have been getting some attention. Work on the windows kicked off in 2017 and the results will be unveiled soon. For the virtual “Zooming Into History” program, stained glass restoration consultant Julie Sloan and Greenwood historian Jeff Richman will be chatting about the project, interesting details uncovered during the work, and highlighting the skilled craftspeople who have been involved.

    The talk takes place on Wednesday, July 15 at 5 p.m. Tickets are $5 or free for Green-Wood Cemetery members. To register, visit the event page online.
