Historic Cemeteries in Central Rockland County

We are pleased to offer a bus tour of several Historic Cemeteries, including

  • Germonds;

  • Martinus Hogencamp (where Jacob Blauvelt is buried);

  • Mount Rest;

  • Coe;

  • Nanuet; and

  • St. Pauls's Highview

A knowledgeable guide will board the bus at each stop, presenting the history of each cemetery. In addition, we will learn about some notable people buried at each cemetery. Although we will be disembarking at two or three cemeteries, these stops will NOT involve a lot of walking.
