Nostalgia Rides

During a 2-hour visit, join a guided tour featuring Woodlawn’s art, architecture, stained glass, and gravesites of some of the most famous jazz musicians, suffragists, civic leaders, and business moguls that “reside” there.  Guests are welcome to bring a picnic lunch and restrooms are available onsite. Our train will depart Woodlawn Station at 4pm and return to Old South Ferry Station at approximately 5pm.
