  • Start near the Old Dutch Church so you don't tire out before seeing the best spots. Beautiful, well tended, historically relevant and free. 
  • We are so glad we stopped to see the cemetery. It is an interesting place, both from the prospective of the "Sleepy Hollow" story, but also the burial sites themselves. Our teenage kids found it more interesting than they anticipated.
  • Very cool cemetery: just make sure, if you are filming there or want to take pictures that you call way beforehand and ask permission. Otherwise you'll be asked to leave. (Learned the hard way).
  • Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is absolutely worth the visit if you're in the area! By the Old Dutch Cemetery there are graves dating back to the 18th century. The highlight, though, are the amazing graves and mausoleums from the great gilded age. The ones I find especially impressive: The Delavan monument (a robe-clad woman on a high pillar holding an anchor flanked by Jesus and a number of angels), The Lister grave (a woman resting on the side of the monument, lamenting the death of Mr. Lister), the Villiard grave (a naked man holding a sledgehammer with an anvil to his side), the Dibble grave (a young girl on her knees holding on to a large cross) and, of course, the Rockefeller mausoleum which you can drive around.

  • Be prepared for some walking, up and down hills. If you're a history and literary buff, you'll enjoy this tourist spot. If you want to take the tour, make sure you try to reserve early, spaces tend to fill up quick.
