Take a leisurely drive thru Albany Rural Cemetery. Some of the monuments are amazing. A US President is even buried here. Google or get a map from the office. It's a trip through time and history.

Went to the Albany Rural Cemetery before my visit to the Schuyler Mansion. The cemetery is gigantic and most of the more popular residents' graves are well kept. There are a lot of beautiful headstones and interesting memorials. I wish the locals cared more and...More
