Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is located in Tarrytown, NY and has been listed on both the New York State and the National Registers of Historic Places. The idea for the Cemetery originated with Washington Irving and Captain Jacob Storm as the Villages of Tarrytown and North Tarrytown were growing and additional burial space was required locally.  The Cemetery was formally opened (as Tarrytown Cemetery) in 1849. Within this 90-acre cemetery, one can Walk the very hills that Washington Irving, famous author of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, once did and pause at his final resting place.  Andrew Carnegie's lovely Celtic cross isa short distance away. Labor leader Samuel Gompers' grave is 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. Guided daytime and evening tours are available starting April 1st, with special events throughout the year, including a spot in the Hudson River Valley Ramble.
