Spooky Sleepy Hollow Cemetery – A Halloween Special Aerial Look

October 31, 2014 by Billionaire Addresses

The Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, listed in the National Register of Historical Places in 2009, in Sleepy Hollow, NY., is the resting place of numerous famous figures. One end of the graveyard is the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery and the other is the Old Dutch Burial Grounds and the Old Dutch Church. It is contiguous with, but separate from, the church yard of the colonial-era church that was a setting for “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”. There are so many interesting places to visit in this sleepy little town, an internet search will bring up all kinds of stories and spooky places to visit there. So on Halloween, being who we are, we just had to show you what the spookiness of one of the most famous old graveyards looks like from above and one of our favorite mansions in the area called Beechwood.

Here is an interesting list of the most notable graves found on the grounds. (Many thanks to Wikipedia for the list)
