Historic Richmond Town

A rare surviving 18th century private graveyard, this cemetery was used by the Rezeau and descendent Van Pelt and Wheatley families. The earliest grave is Jacob Rezeau, 1789. The large center gravestone commemorates Susanna Van Pelt and John A. Van Pelt, Esq. The simple wrought-iron fence, built ca. 1850, consists of X-patterned bays with the cast-iron image of an hourglass with wings at the center crossing.

Restoration made possible by:
State Senator John J. Marchi
