Sleepy Hollow Cemetery Lantern Tour

June 8 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Sleepy Hollow Cemetery tour pauses at the entrance to Archbold mausoleum.

Step back in time and explore the cemetery by kerosene lantern light! This two-hour evening tour gives you a great overview of why Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is so famous.

You’ll visit titans of industry like Andrew Carnegie and William Rockefeller, meet Washington Irving whose famous short story gave our village its very name, see the resting place of two-term Chicago Mayor Walter Gurnee, and learn about two people vital to the success of Wells Fargo and American Express, and much more. Along the way, admire beautiful art, architecture and cool cemetery symbolism.

Dates: Saturday nights through the summer. In September, Friday and Saturday nights. Start times vary due to sunset; please check individual dates for start times. October and November dates will be posted in early September.
