Sleepy Hollow Cemetery
Head for Bedford Street close to the center of Concord and check out the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. Not to be confused with the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in New York, Concord, MA's Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is home to "Author's Ridge," a location within the cemetery featuring the burial site of a long list of legendary and iconic American authors. Sleepy Hollow Cemetery was established in 1855.
While cemeteries aren't typically a major tourism draw, it's interesting to note at Sleepy Hollow's dedication in 1855, the dedication speech was given by Ralph Waldo Emerson, who would find himself buried at the very same cemetery years later. Other notable Concordians to call Sleepy Hollow their final resting place are Louisa May Alcott, author of Little Women, Nathaniel Hawthorne, author of The Scarlet Letter, and Daniel Chester French, sculptor of the Lincoln Memorial.
