Saturday, September 27th, at 2:00 PM at St. Joseph’s Church in Rhinecliff.
This program is the next in our series of the history of the Churches in Rhinebeck that take place inside of the Churches. Historian Mike Frazier will lecture on the history of the Church and take us on a tour of the cemetery to see the graves of some of the important people in Rhinecliff’s history. Meet in front of the Church at 2 PM.
Here are the directions to the Church:
The address is Loftus Road, Rhinecliff (no number)–the church website says “Church Street,” which doesn’t exist. From the intersection of Market Street and Route 9 in Rhinebeck, head west on County Road 85–it changes names from Rhinecliff Road to Charles Street upon entering Rhinecliff. At Corning Street, make a left. Drive slowly as Corning is a very narrow, steep and winding street. At the top of the hill is Loftus Road. The church will be on the left. We ask that visitors not park in front of the church but use the paved parking area north of the church, just beyond the cemetery, and walk on the paved walk to the church. (Those preferring to avoid Corning Street can continue on County Road 85 until it intersects Valley Way Road. Make a very sharp left onto Valley Way, then an immediate left onto Loftus Road. Follow Loftus Road to the end, passing the church on your right, and continue another 100 feet to the paved parking area.
