On Friday October 30, 2020 Sunday, November 1st, 2020 relive the history of Pine Plains through the people who helped build it!  As you stroll by lantern light through the circa 1820 Evergreen Cemetery, you will meet five intriguing characters who will share their stories and challenges as they helped build the town of Pine Plains.  The 60-minute tours will begin at a historic home located at 19 Maple Street in Pine Plains (free street parking), then continue through the Evergreen Cemetery. 

Tours times are 5:30pm, 6:00pm, 6:30pm, 7:00pm and 7:30pm.  The tours are fun for the whole family, but they are more suited for children 6 and up. Tickets are $15 for adults, $5 for students and seniors.

Comfortable walking shoes and small flashlight is helpful.  Get your tickets today, either in-person at the Pine Plains Free Library (7775 S Main St, Pine Plains) or online through Eventbrite.com.

Due to COVID restrictions, we will limit walking tour groups to 25 people, will require face covering/mask and ask for social distancing.  Tickets will not be available at the door, so please be sure to reserve yours in advance. 

We are very excited to be able to offer this fun event during our annual fundraising appeal and truly appreciate everyone’s support.  Our special thanks to the Stissing Theatre Guild and Eileen and Jorge Yajure for their enthusiastic and much needed support!  For more information call (518) 398-1927.
