Sleepy Hollow, NY.


























Not to be a old fashioned "They don't make 'em like this anymore" fuddy duddy, but really. They don't make gravestones like this anymore. Inscribed with melancholy but beautiful inscriptions such as "She Hath Done What She Could", "I Am Passing Away Fast", and "The End of a Perfect Day", these gravestones are intricately carved with gorgeous lettering and images. This graveyard, the final resting place to many of the original Dutch settlers as well as members of the Tappan, Vanderbilt, and Rockefeller families, was a truly special place.
