The Kensico Cemetery was organized in 1889 under the “Act authorizing the incorporation of Rural Cemetery Association” passed April 27th 1847 and the several amendments thereto. The first interment was made September 1, 1889. This Cemetery is in the Hamlet of Valhalla in the township of Mount Pleasant, Westchester County, New York. It has frontage of about one mile on the Rail Road track with a gradual ascent to the highest point of land between Tarrytown and Long Island Sound.
The Kensico Cemetery is non-sectarian and, as such, persons of many different ethnicities and religious backgrounds are interred here. Kensico encourages families to follow their traditions when coming to the cemetery to pay their respects to the deceased. Each year View Full Article
