This historic Dutch family cemetery is located in a shopping mall parking lot. A 20-by-30-foot plot, the cemetery contains 13 identifiable headstones—two standing upright and the others laying down flat—dating from 1705 to 1829.
The Vedder family were among the pioneering settlers in the Schenectady area. Though their plot was abandoned over the decades and seemed forgotten, it was the final sticking point for local community members opposed to the mall’s construction.
