The hill in Weston Cemetery proved to be an attractive sledding hill on Sunday morning. The sledders went fast enough to slide over the road and get the final three foot drop at the bottom.According to the city website, this hill is the high point in Rensselaer. The field at the bottom is one of the low points because it floods when the river gets high. In fact, there have been winters in which the flood water in the field freezes, creating excellent ice-skating rink.
