CLASSIFICATION: Churchyard.
LOCATION: At Green Haven.
CONDITION: In 1912 dirty and rough, partly bare and dug over, partly full of
coarse weeds and refuse and suffering from a poultry yard adjoining.
INSCRIPTIONS: 103 in number. Copied May 21.1912, by J. W. Poucher, M. D., and
Miss Helen W. Reynolds.
REMARKS: Immediately before and after 1800 there was a "Union Church" at Green Haven, ministered to for some time by the pastor of the Baptist Church at Middlebush, town of Wappinger. The church building was large for that day, had a gallery at one end, and a high pulpit with a sounding board. In later years the building was used for entertainments, but has since disappeared. This
burial ground probably marks its site.
After 1912, when this ground was in such very bad condition, Mr. Gilbert F. Foote of Green Haven and Poughkeepsie restored it to order, but it has since then become wild with perennials.
