Franklin Plaza is renowned as the place to go to make dreams come true, and is the cornerstone of historic and prestigious events. The spacious Ballroom with its grand ceilings has been the site of many fairy tale weddings. Cocktail hours and small dinner parties are beautifully set in the Crystal Room , and the boardroom lends itself to small boardroom dinners and business meetings. Regardless of the special event, the doorman warmly greets every guest of the Franklin Plaza.
A cemetery is a history of people, a perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today. Oakwood Cemetery is about preserving this history. Since 1848 this nonsectarian, rural cemetery has become the final resting place for many Americans. Among the many trees, winding roadways, and silent hills are the graves of ” Uncle Sam” Wilson, educator Emma Willard and, financier Russell Sage, Civil War generals, notable inventors from the Industrial Revolution, community founders, such as Jacob D. Vanderheyden, founder of Troy, and Abraham Jacob Lansing, founder of Lansingburgh, New York. The Oakwood Cemetery also gives special tours and events.
