Bring history back to life with a visit to historic Sleepy Hollow Cemetery founded in 1849!
Walk the very hills that Washington Irving, famous author of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, once did and pause at his final resting place to pay your respects! Andrew Carnegie's lovely Celtic cross is just a short distance away. Enjoy the irony of labor leader Samuel Gompers selecting his own grave just across the road from this titan of industry. Other notable stops include William Rockefeller's imposing mausoleum, Henry Villard's exquisite sculpture and the stained glass windows in the Helmsley mausoleum, and many more. Whether you are a history buff, love sculpture, cemetery symbolism, or just want to enjoy the pretty scenery, a visit to historic Sleepy Hollow Cemetery's 90-acre grounds is a wonderful way to spend an hour or more!
Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Donations to our Historic Fund are always welcome to preserve and restore the grounds.
