Sleepy Hollow Cemetery has more than its fair share of permanent residents. According to the organization’s website, the cemetery houses nearly 50,000 interments. Guided tours are offered that share the stories of Washington Irving, his Headless Horseman and the lore of Sleepy Hollow.

Visitors can see the graves of John D. Rockefeller, Walter Crystler and Andrew Carnegie among others with stunning views of the Hudson River throughout.

It must be noted that visitors are only able to visit Irving’s grave during daytime tours or opening hours.

We think a visit here is one of the best things to do in Sleepy Hollow, NY.

I came during the fall and this was probably the most beautiful cemetery I’ve ever visited. Make sure you have plenty of time, I gave myself an hour to wander and it wasn’t enough time to see the whole place. Wear comfortable walking shoes, much of the cemetery is walking only and the ground is hilly and uneven in parts.

It is a large cemetery with beautiful old stones. They do close the gates at 4:30pm.

This place sets off some sort of eerie luminosity which is really awesome if you are a Sleepy Hollow fan. Washington Irving's grave was very easy to find. The Old Dutch Church was closed. But we took a peek inside through the window. Nice little town!
