1. Oak Hill Cemetery Marker
Inscription. This nonsectarian cemetery was dedicated on June 27, 1848 before a crowd of 3,000 people. The establishment of the cemetery reflected a transition from small family or religious cemeteries. Oak Hill Cemetery has been enlarged several times and occupies 65 acres. It is the final resting place of the founders of Nyack and other area families, including veterans, artists, writers, and scientists, among many others. Earlier burials from some small local cemeteries were transferred here.
