These Six U.S. Presidents Were Laid to Rest in NY, Three in Upstate New York
Since the establishment of the office in 1789, 45 people have served as the President of the United States. While six of those politicians are still with us, 39 of them have unfortunately passed away over the years. Throughout history, only one state in the country has more former U.S. Presidents who have been laid to rest within its borders than New York.
In total, six have been buried in the Empire State.
These Six Presidents were Laid to Rest in New York (Three in Upstate)

Of the six Presidents who were laid to rest in New York, four of them were born in the Empire State, while two others were not. Four of the Presidents passed away sometime in the 19th century, while the other two passed during the 20th century.
