Bethel Cemetery & Croton’s Lost Cemeteries

Cemeteries are a record of our nation’s past. There is a rich collection of history located on their grounds. Here in our village we are fortunate to have fantastic examples of period gravestones dating back to the 1700s. Bethel Cemetery is a most charming space, located in the virtual center of our community, surrounded by our schools, library and neighborhoods. Residents pass by and through it on a daily basis making it a part of our village. Carl Oechsner will tell the story of Bethel Cemetery, Croton’s lost Quaker Burying Ground and the Van Cortlandt family cemetery.
