Corporate, Groups, and School Cemetery Tours

Tired of the same old corporate, group,  and school events. Speak with us about planning something new, historical and educational for your group.

Sleepy Hollow Cemetery tours gives you an inside look at the lives of the prominent residents of New York such as the Rockefellers, the Helmsleys and our legendary author Washington Irving who now quietly rest in the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. Not only will you hear the rich, historical tales of their lives, but you will admire the cemetery art that dates back to 1849.

We have a number of themed tours that may be of interest to your group. Our most popular tour is the Murder and Mayhem tour.

Murder & Mayhem introduces some of Sleepy Hollow Cemetery’s fallen angels and colorful incidents. By the flickering light of a lantern you’ll meet both victims and perpetrators: the flamboyant businesswoman remembered as “the wickedest woman in New York,” a debonair counterfeiter, the scene of a grave robbery, a brotherly murder-suicide, and the celebrated opera singer who was alleged to have assaulted, extorted, and killed various of her seven husbands.
