Main entrance to Sleepy Hollow Cemetery
Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Sleepy Hollowmarker, New Yorkmarker is the resting place of numerous famous figures, including Washington Irving, whose story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is set in the adjacent Old Dutch Burying Groundmarker. Incorporated in 1849 as Tarrytown Cemetery, it posthumously honored Irving's request that it change its name to Sleepy Hollow Cemetery.

History

The cemetery is a non-profit, non-sectarian burying ground of approximately 90 acres. 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". The Rockefeller family estate (see Kykuitmarker), whose grounds abut Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, contains the private Rockefeller cemetery.

Several outdoor scenes from the 1970 feature film House of Dark Shadows were filmed at the cemetery's receiving vault.
