On March 1, 2023, Andy Mills and Fred Isseks will present their power point presentation on the historic Hillside Cemetery, focusing on its creation and design which was influenced by Downing, Vaux and Olmstead.  Notable persons buried there, including a Civil War general, artists and philanthropists, will be discussed.

The program is free and open to the public and will be presented in the Community Room on the second floor at 3 p.m.  Light refreshments will be served.

On April 16, 2023, back by popular demand, Brooklyn Baroque will return at 2 p.m. in the second floor Community Room

A future newsletter will provide you with the program and any other related information. As always the program is free and open to the public. You can read our December 2022 newsletter at this link.
