TOUR A HISTORIC (AND KINDA CREEPY) CEMETERY
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and the infamous Headless Horseman are worth nerding out over, even when Halloween is months away. And besides being home to Washington Irving, the village of Sleepy Hollow has plenty of other famous residents such as Elizabeth Arden, Andrew Carnegie, and William Rockefeller -- and they are all buried at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. While taking a pit stop at a cemetary may seem a little, well, creepy, not doing so would be like going to Salem and not checking out a witch museum, or seeing New Orleans without checking out a voodoo shop. That’s especially true because this historic cemetery is home to 18th century “death’s head” tombstones, ornate mausoleums, and is set on a Hudson Valley hilltop that’s so pretty, you’ll forget about the macabre backdrop.
