— The Warrensburgh Historical Society’s 12th annual Graveyard Walks recently concluded with the traditional Dinner with the Dead, held at Lizzie Keays Restaurant.

This year, five illustrious characters from Warrensburgh’s past were portrayed in two evening walks, an afternoon walk for Warrensburg Central School fifth grade students, and the Dinner with the Dead.

Col. Benjamin Burhans, A.C. Emerson, Delbert Pasco, Mrs. Samuel Moses, and “Jack” Brown surfaced to acquaint visitors with their lives and times. Actors this year were James Corriveau, Dennis Martinez, Pete Wood, Susan Jennings, Tom O’Dea and John Gable.

The two evening walks ended with desserts at the Cornerstone Victorian B&B and the home of Bill & Rosemary Maher. Visitors were guided by Lizzie (Donna Wood).
