Historic Red Hook to sponsor Cemetery Crawl this fall

The third annual  Historic Red Hook Cemetery Crawl will take place from September 23 – October 28, 2023.

This event is both a competitive scavenger hunt and a self-guided tour of six Red Hook cemeteries that offers highlights of the lives of interesting individuals and their memorials. The cemeteries on the tour are: Church of St. John the Evangelist (Barrytown), Red Church (Tivoli), St. John’s Reformed Church (Upper Red Hook), St. Pauls’ Lutheran Church (Village of Red Hook), St. Paul’s and Trinity Parish (Tivoli) and United Methodist Church (Village of Red Hook).

All material for the scavenger hunt, including a map of all the cemetery locations, will be available on the Cemetery Crawl website beginning Sept. 23. The awards ceremony will be on Oct. 28 at the Elmendorph Inn.
