Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in New York

On my way to the Headless Horseman Hayride and Haunted Houses, I stopped off at the Sleep Hollow Cemetery in Sleepy Hollow NY to set the mood right. This has been listed on New York and National Register of Historic Places. The Cemetery was formally opened (as Tarrytown Cemetery) in 1849.

Fun fact about who rests here. They include nationally-known individuals including Brooke and Vincent Astor, Major Edward Bowes, Andrew Carnegie, Walter Chrysler, Samuel Gompers, Oswald Villard, Thomas Watson, and, of course, Washington Irving. Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is 85 acres in size, has over 40,000 in-ground interments, and a new community mausoleum. The landscape design natural settings, rolling hills, Hudson River views, and the presence of the Pocantico River, was a foundational example for the rural cemetery movement of the mid-19th Century.

Appropriately creepy!  I had no idea such a place exists. Thanks for sharing.

Oh yes, that's very close to me.  I live 15 mins away and have many customers in Sleepy Hollow (as well as Tarrytown and Pocantico Hills).
