Harvest Moon Cemetery Tours — October 18 & 19, 2019

“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 19 & 20, 2018 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.
