Whether you are a history buff, love sculpture, interesting cemetery symbolism, or just want to enjoy the pretty scenery, a visit to historic Sleepy Hollow Cemetery’s 90-acre grounds is a treat. Make the most of your time here by taking one of our guided tours to unlock some of the secrets behind the stones!
Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. All tour proceeds go directly towards preservation and restoration of the grounds. Donations to the Historic Fund are always welcome.
Due to the COVID-19 virus, our walking tours will not resume in April as planned. We hope to offer them later in the spring. Thank you for your interest!
All groups must be accompanied by Sleepy Hollow Cemetery staff and only Cemetery staff members are permitted to conduct tours here. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for information about scheduling your group and what fees apply. External organizations and parties are expressly prohibited from using the Cemetery for personal profit or private activities not authorized in advance by the Cemetery. It is not possible for groups to wander the grounds on their own. Unauthorized groups on the property will be asked to leave immediately. Please note that the cemetery is private property, owned by its low owners, and funerals occur most days of the week.
