MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- As part of National Park Week, the staff at St. Paul's Church National Historic Site in Mount Vernon is encouraging people to come out and visit Westchester County's only National Park Service site.
The St. Paul's Church site includes an 18th-century church that was used as a Revolutionary War hospital, a historic cemetery with burial stones dating to 1704 and the remnant of a Village Green that was the site of the Election of 1733, which raised issues of Freedom of Religion and Press, according to the park's website. The site helps to tell the story of the development of Colonial society and the road to the American Revolution, the website says.
The park, located at 897 S. Columbus Ave., is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. It is free.
The park was also highlighted as the National Park Getaway, with a written travelogue for visitors. Read the story here at the National Parks official website.
