I was on a driving tour and did not get out, but this would be a lovely place to spend time. Beautiful setting and interesting gravestones. Author's Ridge is the most interesting part. Four literary greats are buried there: Louisa May Alcott, Henry David Thoreau,...More
Love cemeteries in general but this one is wonderful if you love to visit historical grave sites. Authors Ridge is the big attraction here. With graves of Alcott, Emerson, Thoreau and Hawthorne. The cemetery itself is really beautiful with winding hilly streets. It’s a small...More
Four great literary giants are buried in this cemetery. Their graves are at the top of the hill and there is a well trodden path from all the other visitors who have come here. Many people have left pens at their graves. It is a...More
Not morbid at all. Be respectful there. It's quiet, only a handful of parking spaces. Feels a little weird if you miss the parking and have to one way drive through cemetery to get there. We happen to be there when several had visited Emerson,...More
I've made this pilgrimage before. As always, I'm moved to tears to stand on the path of giants. Yes, Henry and Louisa are there, and yes, their graves are often full of tokens, blessings, and tributes. But so is Hawthorne, may he be rediscovered, and...More
I loved stopping here to see the graves of historical American literature artists. My only issue is the parking situation. It has very narrow roads that makes it difficult to park, especially when they're doing construction in the cemetery.
Sleepy Hollow is so interesting to walk around in and see the famous graves in the peaceful and hilly grounds. The headstones are beautiful and history lives on here. Get a map so you can see the ones you want to see and then just...More

Mourning Victory, (AKA the Melvin Angel) is part of the Melvin Memorial near the central entrance to Concord's Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. There are several possible ways to get pictures of this monument. An internet search for Mourning Victory will give you many images of this memorial and the related carving in New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art. You could inquire with the Town of Concord, Massachusetts about available pictures of this memorial. You could also ask the MET about pictures of their similar carving. Note that the work in the MET is reversed from the one in Concord and represents only the central figure, not the entire memorial.
