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.

All proceeds from the event go towards the restoration and beautification of the Menand House and surrounding grounds.
