Date of Event: 10/24/2021 2:00pm
About the Event:
Walk scenic Oak Hill Cemetery and celebrate the lives of many “permanent residents” of the Nyacks who made their mark on the national, state, and local stages. Actress Helen Hayes, playwrights Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur, artist Edward Hopper, author Carson McCullers and some of the earliest settlers of the Nyacks are buried here. Meet 2pm at the Cemetery entrance gate, Route 9W, between Sickles Avenue and 5th Avenue. To help cover the costs of maintaining our exhibit space, publicity, and future programs, the Historical Society of the Nyacks asks for a $10 donation from participants.
