Over the weekend we visited Sleepy Hollow with some friends. The cemetery at the old dutch church is maybe the best in the country- although I still haven't visited the epic southern ones that are almost all mausoleums. The fact that washington irving is buried there and it's the site of the headless horseman's grave is just the icing on the cake- the cemetery alone without spooky backstory could take up a whole day of exploring with its huge stretch of old historic tombstones, mausoleums, statues, and monuments. It's the perfect backdrop for Halloween. I was really hoping to get a glimpse of the headless horseman around the church, as I've heard that around halloween the town puts on all kinds of festivities, but I think the locals have caught on to the lucrative aspect of their town lore, and it was more than I was willing to pay for tickets to go on the 'haunted horseman hayride'. maybe next year.
