2: Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, Concord, Massachusetts
While it may have the same name as the cemetery in Tarrytown, this particular Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is known for quite a different reason. Rather than being at the centre of folklore and legend, it is something of a literary shrine with an area known as Author’s Ridge, which is hugely popular with visitors. This is where you will find some of the most famous writers and thinkers in the history of the United States, including Ralph Waldo Emerson and Louisa May Alcott of ‘Little Women’ fame.
Address: 34 Bedford St, Concord, MA 01742
