Historical Cemetery Hunt

HVHH Cemetery Hunt logo

In the spirit of Halloween, this History Hunt takes place in famous cemeteries of the Hudson Valley.

RULES: Go to a cemetery on this list (currently Montrepose in Kingston, but we’ll be adding more). Find the gravesites of the person mentioned and document your discovery with a photo, which should then be uploaded to Instagram and tagged #hvhistoryhunt. If you cannot make it there in person, you can search online and document your discovery with a screen shot. You might also want to print out this form and take it with you on your hunt!

Find at least five gravesites to qualify for a History Hunt Certificate and be entered into the monthly raffle for other prizes.  As you make your discoveries, check off the lines where the people are listed. 
After you’ve found  and posted at least five, you can click the submit button at the bottom of the form.

Please remember that you are visiting an active cemetery — a place of reflection. You are encouraged to explore the cemetery  and walk on the grass to find grave sites in the hunt. However, running and shouting, climbing on graves or monuments, or taking selfies is discouraged.
