Tour the Cemetery

Saturday, June 10, at 2:00pm at the Rhinebeck Cemetery, Meet Some of Rhinebeck’s Famous Former Residents as you Tour the Cemetery, A Joint Program with the Friends of Rhinebeck Cemetery.

 

Historian Steven Mann will take us on a tour of the cemetery where you will meet residents such as Daisy Suckley, Deborah Dows, Laura Delano and Levi P. Morton, among others, who will tell you stories about their lives. People are asked to drive through the Mill Road gates and park as close to the circle by the Suckley plot as possible. The tour will begin at the Suckley plot which is right by that circle. There is minimal walking, however those wishing may want to bring light weight folding chairs or small folding stools to sit at the different stations. The tour will encompass an hour worth of visits to seven family plots with local residents portraying the deceased. Reception will follow at the Kane Barn at 54 Mill Rd.
