Washington Irving Rests in Sleepy Hollow

The noted American writer's grave is in the cemetery of the same name as his great short story, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow". Many of Irving's characters (and even the Headless Horseman it is rumored) are buried there too.

 

Nearby is Sunnyside, where he lived. It's worth a visit.

 

Sleepy Hollow (formerly North Tarrytown) is in Westchester County, New York.
