Richard J. Moylan

awards_placekeeper_2016_pic1.pngRichard J. Moylan has served Brooklyn’s Green-Wood Cemetery with dedication and distinction for more than forty years. Hired as a teenager, he rose through the ranks from groundskeeper to assistant surveyor to landscape supervisor to assistant corporate secretary to Cemetery president, the position he has held since 1986. Famed since its origin in 1838 for its wealth of handsome sepulchral monuments and sculptures, Green-Wood’s collection of mature specimen trees has earned accreditation as an arboretum. Through educational and tour programs that allow the public to enjoy this artistic and botanical heritage, Moylan has opened the gates of this National Historic Landmark to more than 250,000 visitors annually.
