  • Very large cemetery that belongs to the old Dutch Church. There are some famous names buried, of which Washington Irving (writer of the Sleepy Hollow legend) is the most famous. Easy to get lost, what will be no problem because it's wonderfully quiet walk here. Especially in late autumn-colored leaves on the trees beautifully with all kinds of. (Note: in the weeks before Halloween it can look very busy!) Challenge: find the grave of the Headless Horseman.

  • We visited the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery hoping To do the walking tour but it was sold out but luckily you can walk the grounds yourself for free and they also give you a map to find all the historical s...  more »
  • So much history to take in. Whenever we go to Sleepy Hollow we always go to the cemetery. You can spend hours walking around. If you can't walk you can drive around but you won't see as much.

  • Boooooo I loved the midnight tour on Oct 31st. Very cool and educational. Beautiful cemetery.
  • Pay a visit around Halloween, you can see Washington Irvings gravesite, mausoleums, the receivig vault where they filmed the 1970 House of Dark Shadows and Rockefeller's tomb.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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).
