In celebration of the restoration of the home once belonging to the Menand Village’s namesake and once world-famous horticulturist, Louis Menand; Albany Diocesan Cemeteries will host a very special garden party on the grounds of the Louis Menand House built circa 1846!

Thursday, September 19, 2019
4:30 – 7:30 PM

Tickets: $35., please RSVP by 9/1.

Featuring trolley rides and live graveside skits with Albany Civic Theater on Founders’ Hill in Historic St. Agnes Cemetery.

Join us for a late summer gathering of friends and supporters of historic preservation and enjoy good food, wine and beer on the grounds of the Menand House before boarding a trolley to Founders’ Hill to watch upbeat and amusing skits highlighting some of the notable people interred in Historic St. Agnes Cemetery.

The Menand House and 3 ½ acres were purchased by St. Agnes Cemetery in 2016. It now serves as the central administrative office of Albany Diocesan Cemeteries.
