"One of the most beautiful cemeteries in Western New York is Forest Hill..." So begins the history of the cemetery located in Fredonia, New York (Fredonia is located at Exit 59 off I-90). On October 20 & 21, 2017 Festivals Fredonia, Inc., noted for their Ghost & History Tours, will host horse-drawn trolley tours every half hour through local cemetery. Come hear the tales of the founding families, local heroes & some of the most notorious villains from around the area all told by knowledgeable guides. If you're lucky, you may even hear the stories of the past from the dearly departed residing within the cemetery gates.
The tours begin at 7 pm and run until 10 pm, on the half hours. Advance sale tickets required. The trolleys will load passengers at the Gazebo in West Barker Commons Park on Church St., Fredonia & return to the same area. Each year the trolley tours sell out – don’t be left standing in the cold – don't forget to get your tickets early! Tour is appropriate for ages 8 and up.
This is an outdoor event in a covered, but open side trolley, so please dress for the weather! ** Please note tours run rain or "shine" and tickets are non-refundable.**
Refreshments will be served at tour's end in the Gazebo in the park.
We are currently seeking volunteers for the 2017, 2 night production. If you are interested please contact Event Chair Mary Jane Starks at 716-680-2844 by August 1st.
