Historic Red Hook's
Third Annual Cemetery Crawl
Historic Red Hook is launching their third annual Cemetery Crawl! 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. All you need is your smartphone and some good weather and you’ve got a lovely way to spend the fall season enjoying local history.
You can find our booth on Hardscrabble Day, on September 23 from 10 AM to 4 PM in the Village of Red Hook parking lot (map) , where we will officially launch the event. Join us for crafts and make sure to get a stamp for bonus points on your scavenger hunt!
The Crawl will conclude with an award ceremony on October 29th at the Elmendorph Inn at 3 PM. Everyone who participates will get a prize, and a chance to win 1 of 4 grand prize baskets!
