|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Red Hook Methodist Burial Ground is a small cemetery located in the village of Red Hook, Dutchess County, NY, on Cherry Street. This is northeast of the intersection of Market Street and Broadway and can be reached by going through the grocery store parking lot just north of the old Triebel's Garage building as the cemetery is just a block or two behind (east of) it. Beware of the poison ivy growing around the edges of the cemetery and on the fence in some places.
User Julie Lake provides these directions, which may be easier to understand:
"From the main intersection (Market & Broadway), just head north on Hwy. 9 (N. Broadway) for one block, and take the first right (east) onto Cherry St. (Right is the only way you can turn onto Cherry.) Go east, and in one block cross Graves St. Go another half block east, and this cute little cemetery will be on your left."

I noticed this cemetery while visiting relatives (I don't live in New York state) in May of 2002 and was surprised that there are apparently no surveys of it online. I photographed some of the stones and uploaded them to my website. The cemetery appears to be kept up, but not used recently. The latest death date that I saw on any of these markers was 1946.
