WALKING THROUGH HISTORY - Cemetery Tour on October 2nd at 11am

 A tour of the Maple Grove Cemetery in Clyde will occur on Saturday, October 2nd. The tour will start at 11 a.m.

Hugh Miner, Town and Village Historian, and Nicole Malbone, Galen Historical Society President, will lead walkers, while maintaining social distancing, past the gravestones of many of the people who made history in the Galen/Clyde area. Veterans, public officials, and entrepreneurs are some of the people whose stories will be recounted.

Parking is available near the entrance to the Cemetery, which is located on the south side of the village. Off Route 414, south of the bridge over the Canal, take the first eastward road and bend around the hill for less than a mile and the Cemetery will be in view.

Masks are encouraged.


See our updated Calendar below for other upcoming events through the rest of the year.  We are open by appointment.  Please reach out if you need or would like to stop down.
