The Albany Rural Cemetery has another walking tour coming up June 16, and the theme is women's history. Tour blurbage:

The tour will make about a dozen stops featuring abolitionists, poets, Civil War nurses, the first woman admitted to the New York State Bar Association, and more.
Because the walk will include hills and unpaved paths, attendees are asked to wear sensible shoes and bring bug spray.

The tour is Saturday, June 16 at 10:30 am. Tickets are $15 and space is limited. Call 518-463-7017 to register.

The Albany Rural Cemetery is a beautiful place for a walk. The cemetery has been organizing a handful of these sorts of events lately and they are popular. A historic tour with re-enactors earlier this month filled almost up very quickly, and a Civil War-themed tour in August this summer filled up a few hours after we posted about it last week.

So if you'd like to take the tour, it's better to sign up earlier rather than later.
