Valhalla History

According to historians, the wife of the local postmaster was an ardent fan of German composer, theater director and essayist, Richard Wagner. Like Wagner, she was interested in the Myth of the Norse, so she coined the name Valhalla, which in the mythology referred to the heavenly hall of slain warriors. Valhalla’s connection with death continues through the presence of the world famous cemetery area, the Kensico Cemetery, which was founded in 1889 when most cemeteries in New York City were filled.
