  • The cemetery is nice look at history. Worth taking a few hours to walk about and study the monuments.  more »
  • We obtained the location of Harriet Tubman's grave from the Visitor Center at her house. It took us a little time but we found her gravestone and paid our respects.  more »

  • Another fabulous old cemetery in upstate New York. Great for a quiet walk. Make sure to say hi to Harriet Tubman.
  • Aside from the fact that this is a cemetery, it’s a beautiful spot to walk and explore. Lots of history, much of which is steeped in mystery. Used to walk this place late at night with friends just for the thrill. Very weird vibes and strange happenings.
