WARRENSBURG- The Warrensburgh Historical Society is holding its 9th annual series of 9th Graveyard Walks and Dinner With The Dead featuring actors and history enthusiasts portraying noted townspeople from past eras who are buried in the 160-year-old Warrensburg Cemetery. Attendees will find out the impact that John G. Smith, Lizzie Keays, Lewis Thomson, Mabel Tucker and Isabelle Cornell had on the town of Warrensburg, an event organizer said. These five "ghosts" will be spirited around town, telling the interesting stories of their past lives in Warrensburg.
Graveyard Walks will be conducted at 7 p.m. sharp at the Warrensburg Cemetery on two consecutive Fridays. On Friday Oct. 23, the walk will be followed by a gourmet dessert buffet at the Cornerstone Victorian B&B on upper Main Street. The price for this event is $10 per person.
The second walk will be held Friday Oct. 30 and includes desserts at the Maher residence, 2 Cloverleaf Dr. (just north of cemetery). The price for that event is $6 per person. To reserve tickets for either event, call 623-3436. These walks are popular and space is limited, so call early. It is recommended that spectators wear warm clothing and carry flashlights.
On Sunday Oct. 25 at 6 p.m., a full course "Dinner With The Dead" will be served at Grace's Restaurant at The Griffin House, 3 Hudson Street. Diners will be visited by ghosts of the past between courses. Entree choices are Roast Pork Tenderloin, Baked Salmon en Croute, Chicken Dijon, or Penne Pasta with Pesto Sauce, Roasted Red Peppers, Black Olives and Spinach. Price, including tax and tip is $35.
