Our 2024 Ancestors Walk begins in front of the Red Brick Church at 10:00 AM on scheduled Saturdays. Fantastic stories from the past three hundred years will inspire and inform you!

We know you will enjoy our highly anticipated Historic Ancestors Walk—A Guided Walking Tour of the Cold Spring Presbyterian Church and Cemetery! The entire community is invited to step into history by experiencing one of our informative and engaging walking tours of the historic church and surrounding cemetery. Like all our events, this is a “Come as you are” activity for the entire family. No reservations are required.

Our volunteer docents and guides, sometimes dressing in period costumes, will share inspiring stories of exciting individuals whose remains are buried in our sacred space. Our oldest gravestone is dated 1742. Our Red Brick Church is a national historic landmark with a compelling story of its own to enjoy! View historic relics and become a part of our continuing story.
