It was a beautiful day at the end of October to walk around the Old Dutch Church and the cemetery. There were many interesting gravestones and the employees were there to answer questions.

The oldest church in New York state. Kept up very well. Volunteers are very helpful and nice. They have a nice map of the cemetery, with historical information and photos. A must for this area!

It is a seasonal event but the church and graveyard are open. Jonathan Kruk is the performer and has other storytelling events around NY and Westchester County. Check it out on Facebook.
