About this event

The historic cemetery at Ringwood Manor is often a source of intrigue to our visitors. Who are these people whose final resting place is Ringwood? This guided outdoor walking tour will take visitors to the cemetery and will discuss why the cemetery exists, the various individuals buried on the property, and headstone carving and symbolism. This is a 1 hour walking tour and participants should be prepared to walk or stand for that time, sometimes over uneven ground. Comfortable and supportive shoes are recommended.

Offered on select Saturdays & Sundays at 1:00pm throughout the year.

Tour is FREE. State Park parking fee for entrance to park still applies: $5 for in-state residents & $7 for out-of-state residents. Tours limited to 20 people. Steady rain cancels. Advanced registration through Eventbrite highly recommended. Walkups permitted if space allows.

In registering for this history program, you agree to maintain social distancing protocols (to the extent possible) from individuals attending the program that are not within your family/party.

If you are feeling ill the day of your registered program, please do not attend.

It is highly recommended that participants wear sturdy walking shoes, weather appropriate clothing, and may wish to use sunscreen or bug spray. Also, while we love having dogs in the park, we do not allow them on the walking tours as we cannot anticipate if another attendee has serious allergies or phobias. We apologize for any inconvenience.
