Our evening lantern tours introduce some of the famous and infamous residents of Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. After paying respects to Washington Irving, author of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," we may visit a Revolutionary War militia captain, the cemetery's Revolutionary War monument, noted poets and artists, the soaring Gothic monument of a wealthy merchant, industrialists Andrew Carnegie and William Rockefeller, and others. We also introduce some of the cemetery art, architecture, and symbols on our grounds, and almost always step into the cemetery's 112-year-old underground receiving vault.
Skill level: Some people may find the pace of our two-hour walking tours challenging. We cover more than a mile on foot and encounter stairs, unpaved roads, and hills. Please consider your own abilities when signing up for a tour.
Refunds, exchanges: All sales are final. No exchanges or refunds unless tour/event is canceled. Weather: Sleepy Hollow Cemetery walking tours generally run rain or shine. If we cancel a tour due to severe weather such as high winds, lightning, or heavy rain, we will promptly refund your full purchase price.
