rganized in 1847 by Eleazar Lord, the first president of the Erie Railroad, the cemetery was a contender for America's national cemetery in the late 19th century. (That honor, of course, went to Arlington, near Washington, DC.). On this walk, we'll learn about a number of notable people who chose Rockland Cemetery as their final resting place.

The walk will cover about one mile, round-trip, with some uneven and uphill terrain.
Sturdy footwear is required, and all participant should bring water and a snack.
