Historic St. Agnes Cemetery Receives Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area Grant



Historic St. Agnes Cemetery, Menands is pleased to announce the award of a $5,000 grant from the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area for its Visitors Enhancement Program.

The purpose of this project is to enhance the Cemetery's Visitor Center with technology to make it easier to market and promote our educational programs i.e. virtual tours, history of the cemetery and to allow visitors to easily locate burial sites. The project will begin in April under the direction of cemetery historian Kelly Grimaldi.

The first phase will involve the installation of a computer kiosk on the Visitor Center's entrance to provide support to visitors when the office is closed. St. Agnes Cemetery is listed as a tourist destination on the New York Path Through History initiative and with the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area. This historic cemetery founded in 1867 is comprised of 114 acres and is considered one of the most beautiful Catholic cemeteries in the country. The cemetery receives thousands of visitors annually. An easy to use outdoor kiosk encourages visitation seven days a week and provides the visitor with a means to better interpret Historic St. Agnes Cemetery and locate gravesites.
