The old abandonned Baxter cemetery. 48 graves, the earliest dating to 1820. It’s less than 10 minutes walk from the house – in the woods between Lake Shore Road and the Taconic Parkway. It’s not so easy to find. At first there’s a bit of a path, but eventually you end up just “bushwacking” through the woods until you bump into it (or not. Luckily I did). Apparently three Revolutionary War veterans are buried here. It’s a bit spooky. Not the kind of place to go up to on a dark and stormy night. Not that I would go up there after dark (I probably wouldn’t find it and would likely break a leg falling over a dead tree) The old cemetery seems even more spooky in “antique” looking black and white
