Join the Town of Ballston’s Town Historian, Rick
Reynolds, in a tour of Hillside Cemetery in Burnt Hills,
NY to learn the role of cemeteries in preserving our
history. What goes into the preservation of our past in
a cemetery? What stories lurk within cemeteries? Rick
will explain how the town of Ballston is preserving its
past in Hillside Cemetery and tell the stories of those
buried there.

After the program, visit the sanctuary of the 1820
Burnt Hills Baptist Church which owned the cemetery for
over 75 years. Cold drinks will be available.

Please park in the lot adjacent to the Burnt Hills
Baptist Church on Kingsley Road and walk to the
cemetery on the other side of the church. Wear
good walking shoes!

Recommended donation is $10 per group (individual, couple or family), but please input the expected number of people in the group so that we can keep track of numbers.
