"What a fun event! I was sad when it was over. I wanted to hear more stories of the people who once walked the same Kingston streets that we do! GO SEE THIS ! It is definitely family friendly. It's not a "spooky" tour. It's historical."

-MARY TARCZA, Kingston, NY

Success!

Our Fall 2016 Historic Cemetery Tours attracted more than 500 people on the five tours we scheduled. 

Walk with us in the Old Dutch Church Cemetery to meet the ghosts of Revolutionary Kingstonians, all with vivid memories of the burning of their hometown by the British.


You'll move through the Cemetery, following lit candles, and stop at five stations to hear stories of the leaders and inhabitants of Kingston in 1777. The ghosts will talk about their roles in the community, where they were when Kingston burned, and how they aided the Revolution and the rebuilding of their homes.
