The Sleepy Hollow Cemetery was everything I expected it to be. I have a great love of cemetaries and the statues that are in them. Sleepy Hollow is well cared for and has many different areas to see. There are monuments for the Civil War, the Revolutionary War, The Dutch Chapel, The famous Headless horseman Bridge and of course Washington... 更多
I had no idea how much this place would charm me! I've always enjoyed cemeteries, but this was the tops. Washington Irving's simple plot is there, and so many, many more. I can't imagine how perfect a Halloween party there would be! I understand that they do hold special events all the month of October. Fun!
Take a guided tour. We went on a Sunday morning thinking someone would be there to assist us. The gates were open but no employees could be found. A directional map was at the gate but finding the points of interest was a challenge. I wish all road intersections had signage and perhaps a marker at the graves listed on... 更多
Old Church at entrance tells the tale as youenter. It is also the setting for the story of The Headless Horseman. Very impressive is the age of the Church and the old tombstones nearby. It is still being used for current burials and is extremely large.
I think I had higher expectations for this place than I should have. I found it was difficult to find the plots I was searching for. There was a free map at the gate with souvenirs, but it wasn't the clearest. I also expected to have more time there. The website shows it closes at 6:00pm yet the signs showed... 更多
I am not one for walking around a cemetery. Walked around here for an hour before the Kykuit tour. There is famous people buried here. Washington Irving and Andrew Carnage. I only saw those two but there are others. It is a pretty big cemetery a lot of walking, but if you want you can drive through. There are also... 更多
We went on the ghost walk and had a blast! They passed out some lanterns and that was the only light we had. It was a lot more educational than we were expecting. Was not real scary. Our tour guide knew all the trivia that made this so fun. This is a must do if you're in Sleepy Hollow. Only... 更多
This is a LARGE cemetery. We walked it the week of Halloween and it felt very spooky! This time of year you need to do a tour if you have never been, but it is also just very pretty to walk in fall with all the leaves changing.
Please be sure to use a map! This cemetery is much like The Hotel California... You can check in... But may never leave! We did not find the Headless Horseman's grave..... However, we found a huge family plot that were related to me! It is a beautiful park with amazing trees and flowering bushes. I could have stayed there all... 更多
My family enjoys the show sleepy hollow. Therfore we had to visit the cemetery. The map was helpful and we were able to drive and stop the vehicle and walk around with no problems. It was very educational and really wasn't morbid at all. It was actually a highlight of our weekend getaway.
