Walking Tour of Mt. Hebron Cemetery Led by Montclair Historical Society

Date: October 22, 2016
1:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Founded in 1863, the Mt. Hebron Cemetery was established on farmland donated by the area’s earliest Dutch settlers. Plots include some of the oldest family names in Speertown (Upper Montclair) and Cranetown (Montclair). The 30-acre cemetery is the smallest in Montclair, and perhaps one of the most beautiful, with stunning views from its location on the eastern slope of First Mountain.
