 On September 30, 2023 as a cooperative effort, the Cutchogue-New Suffolk Historical Council and the North Fork Community Theatre will host its first tour of the Old Cutchogue Burying Ground. 

The tour begins at a booth on the North West corner of the Old Burial Ground at 32770 Main Road (corner of Main Road and Harbor Lane), Actors in period costumes recount the life stories of historic figures who are buried in the graveyard.

Six “widow guides” dressed in Victorian mourning costumes will guide you through the burial ground where the costumed actors will recount the lives of notable figures in Cutchogue’s history while standing atop their graves.  The notables include a veteran of the French-Indian War, an exiled tory, a beloved school teacher, former slaves and many more who were responsible for forming Cutchogue as we know it today. Mark MacNish, Executive Director of the Council will start the tour off with a brief history of the burial site and hand it over to Mary Kalich, a member of the board of directors of the theatre who will give a brief history of the theater and how it was once a church.

Tours will start at 2pm and end at 4pm. Tour groups of a maximum of 20 people will be scheduled in 10-minute intervals. Tickets must be purchased in advance, no one will be admitted without an advance ticket.

Tickets are $25.00/pp and are available at , at 631-298-NFCT (6328) or you can purchase them directly at Brown Paper Tickets. The Rain Date is Oct. 9, 2023. All proceeds equally benefit the two organizations that are hosting the tour. (Please note this is NOT the Mattituck Graveyard Tour, although done in a similar fashion, it is at the Cutchogue Burying Ground and will be about the people buried at that site.)
