The one in Massachusetts is an attraction too with its Authors Ridge including Louisa May Alcott, Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Nathaniel Hawthorne.

The cemetery was a beautiful site that must be amazing in autumn when the foliage is at its peak!
The headstones are quite basic here but some have awesome weathering!
I would love to explore Concord more in the Fall. On the way to the cemetery I drove by the Little Women house! It was where Alcott lived, wrote and used for the setting of the novel.
Homes of Thoreau and Emerson are also in Concord. However I'm not sure why Hawthorne rests here since he resided in the witch hysteria town of Salem, MA. That is also where the House of Seven Gables is. It is amazing to live in the same area my entire life and not have explored so many neat historical sites!
I hope you enjoyed this peak of Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great week ahead! ~Val
