The Classic Tour Dig deeper into the history of Sleepy Hollow Cemetery and its residents.

We also introduce some of the cemetery art, architecture, and symbols on our grounds, and we almost always step into the cemetery’s 115-year-old underground receiving vault. A great choice for first time visitors! Meeting point: South Gate (430 N. Broadway, Sleepy Hollow)
