BCHS Memorial Day Presentation and Hackensack First Reformed Church Graveyard Tour @ Hackensack First Reformed Church

The Bergen County Historical Society (BCHS) invites the public to join us this Memorial Day, Monday, May 29th at 10 am - 11 am.

Each year the society honors the U.S. veterans of all wars who fought and died in service for our country with a wreath laying at the grave of General Enoch Poor in the burial ground of the First Dutch Reformed Church on the Green.

This year BCHS Past President James Smith will speak on General Enoch Poor followed by a tour of the historic cemetery with BCHS Past President Deborah Powell. Burials began in 1696 and the cemetery is on the National Register. The late BCHS historian Reginald McMahon estimated 21 veterans of the American Revolution are interred in this ancient burying ground.

Location:
First Dutch Reformed Church in Hackensack
42 Court Street, Hackensack, NJ 07601

Street parking.

No tickets or reservations required.

Note that the graveyard tour will present some uneven ground.
