The Foundation is also hosting its popular Twilight Cemetery Tour “Madness, Murder, Untimely Deaths, and Strange Coincidences,” on Thursday, October 21 at 5PM which provides a rare opportunity to get in the spooky Halloween spirit by exploring Greenridge Cemetery at dusk while unearthing tales of Saratoga’s most notable residents and learning about the American rural cemetery movement with tour leader Gloria May.
