Historic Cemetery

When the church was built in 1868-69, major subscribers were granted the right to choose sites for burial vaults. Nine such vaults and three mausoleums were built.

In the Hall Mausoleum are interred the parents and maternal grandparents of Eleanor Roosevelt. Chancellor Livingston is buried in the Clermont Livingston vault.

And in a plot south of the church are a monument to Frederick de Peyster and a large monument to General John Watts de Peyster.

An atmosphere of peace surrounds the cemetery.

The Vestry has approved the establishment of a new endowment for the maintenance and possible expansion of the churchyard. Donations are most welcome.

Burial plots are still available to individuals wishing to be buried in our historic cemetery.
