Every Spring and Fall, Cold Spring Presbyterian Church invites the community 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. However, if you’re vacationing and would like to plan ahead, reserve your place on the tour by selecting a FREE RSVP ticket for your preferred date, below.

Our volunteer docents and guides, often dressing in period costumes, will share inspiring stories of interesting individuals whose remains are contained 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!
