Presidential Pathways: Chester A. Arthur Burial Place

After leaving office, Chester A. Arthur returned to his old law practice in New York City.  In retirement, Arthur battled illness and made few public appearances.  After spending the summer in New London, Conn., he returned to his home in New York and died from a cerebral hemorrhage on Nov. 18, 1886.  He was buried in his family plot at Albany Rural Cemetery in Menands, N.Y.
