Gov. Samuel J. Tilden Monument is a historic funeral monument located in Cemetery of the Evergreens at New Lebanon in Columbia County, New York. It was designed by architect Ernest Flagg (1856-1947) and built in 1895-1896. It contains the remains of New York State Governor Samuel J. Tilden (1814-1886). It consists of a nine and one half ton cut granite sarcophagus on a raised platform of four cut granite steps. The crypt entrance is marked by a cast-bronze gate that provides access to three brick arched crypts.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.[1]
