< Research — Riverside Cemetery Tours 2007-2012

A cemetery should not be a scary place; it's a place to celebrate local history and interesting lives. The Cemetery Tours bring the community together as we learn history and recognize the contribution of those who came before us. 

For six years, in collaboration with Gouverneur's Riverside Cemetery, the Museum sponsored a tour of selected monuments. As the tour visits each monument, we learn about the contributions of the person it commemorates.
