A beautiful old cemetery, famous for the Headless Horseman. Several famous graves, such as Samuel Gompers. Great for a walk on a nice day. Around Halloween, you may meet the Horseman.

We were on one of the first evening tours of the season. Our tour guide Ro was entertaining and knowledgeable. It was a great mix of historical facts and just the right mix of spookiness. Definitely worth the visit!

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Can the cemetery be visited without booking a tour? I mean can I just stop by and have a quick look around by myself?

Yes. No problem. You can park on the grounds in designated areas. It a hilly terrain.
Do you know if they allow photographers to use tripods? Or do they move around pretty quickly?

Response from Ro M |
Tripods are not permitted on tours.
I would like to buy tickets for the night cemetery tour but it shows that it's sold out for the whole month. Is there any other way of me purchasing tickets? Thanks in advanced.
