Take a walk
East Hampton - posted Oct, 12 2012
EAST HAMPTON- The East Hampton Parks and Recreation will sponsor a walking tour of Lake View Cemetery on Sunday, Oct. 28 at 1 p.m. as part of its “Explore East Hampton” monthly series of walks. Come for a walk back in time and learn about the people who lived in the area and their many achievements. The walk will be led by Kevin J. Tulimieri who is a historian and researcher at Nathan Liverant and Son Antiques in Colchester. The tour of the Lake View Cemetery will include the impressive Civil War brownstone monument to Jason H. Barton, who was wounded at the battle of Antietam. Tulimieri and members of the Chatham Historical Society will share many stories about the people who "reside" there. The Walking Tour offers a wonderful and unique opportunity for new residents to learn about the history of East Hampton and for life-long residents to share their recollections and stories with others. Adults and children are welcome to join in what promises to be an afternoon of making local history come alive. The walk will begin by driving through the cemetery entrance on Summit Street that is just off Route 66 and near the CVS store. The tour will take approximately 1 hour. Heavy rain will cancel the walk.
