We were on a cross-country trip in our quest to see all the National Park sites. We arrived an hour before the posted closing time, only to be told by the groundskeeper that all of the tour guides had left. At first, our hearts sank. The groundskeeper told us that he was the only person there and then he went... More

This wonderful historic site is definitely a bit hidden in urban Mount Vernon but really worth a visit! I had a very knowledgable tour guide who took me through the historic church and around the graveyard. Definitely worth a visit for any history buff interested in the Revolutionary Era.

Very interesting piece of American history. Shows usage over many years, including function during the battles of the 18th century. Interesting video presentation and displays of models depicting battles. Also displays of uniforms and pictures referring to the era. Well worth a visit. A jewel in an area of urban development.

This is a place that is filled with history, in an unexpected place. The church is remarkable with an amazing organ, pews that had very famous people sit in, and even an area which shows tools that were used during the was and this was used as a hospital. There is a traditional museum, with a hstory scavenger hunt to... More

This is one of the oldest grave yards in Westchester County. Located in Mt Vernon, New York. Worth a trip to walk around and see years of A merican history writen in stones.

The church, cemetery and adjacent visitor center give a good idea of what colonial life was like. Muskets, soldiers' uniforms, dresses, maps and other historical artifacts tell about the area's history and the Bill of Rights. Historical demonstrations, presentations and events like Shakespeare plays are staged.

If you are a fan of old cemeteries, make sure not to miss this one. Make sure to visit in the late afternoon after the school children have all come and gone though. We didn't call ahead to see what the schedule for the day was. When we got there we had two small tour groups of third graders. We... More
