Each year the Village of Montgomery's Historic Preservation Commission hosts a Cemetery Walk at Riverside Cemetery on the first Wednesday of October at 7P. Guests are led through the cemetery in small groups to meet the fascinating "ghosts" of early pioneers and other cemetery residents. Tours begin near the corner of River and Taylor Street about every 10 minutes. Don't forget your flashlight! Due to the uneven terrain, the HPC asks all participants to bring a flashlight and sturdy shoes. There is no charge for this event.
