Staten Island’s Historic Cemeteries
Saturday, September 27, 11:00AM (TROLLEY TOUR)

Lynn Rogers, executive director of the Friends of Abandoned Cemeteries of Staten Island, led this trolley tour which explored three cemeteries dating to the early 19th century. Stops included the Marine Hospital/Quarantine Station Cemetery, where thousands of Irish Famine Immigrants were reinterred in April 2014; the Staten Island/Fountain Cemetery & Native American Burial Ground, a haunted site and the city’s largest abandoned cemetery (8 acres); and Lake Cemetery, a working class cemetery where many Civil War and WWI Veterans were buried.
