2023 Old Dutch Church Living History Tours
Step back in time to October 1777 and hear the personal stories of five remarkable women who survived the BURNING OF KINGSTON!
We are outside the Old Dutch Church in Kingston, New York. As night falls, and the guests gather, our ghosts light their lanterns and take their places. We are transported through space and time to join them in the liminal space of the graveyard to hear their stories… are they here in our time? Are we back in theirs? They speak to us and share the cries of their hearts that still linger in this realm.
