Sleepy Hollow Cemetery (MA)

Situated right smack in the middle of the birthplace of the American Revolution, Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is a stunning old cemetery that is known for one section called Author’s Ridge. Author’s Ridge is a hilltop section where, in close proximity, four giant American literary figures and their families are buried.  The rest of the cemetery is beautiful, but the quick hike to the top of this famous ridge is the reason people visit.
