What better place to learn about the interwoven lives of Concordians in the 19th century than our beautiful town cemetery! World famous authors, who once walked these grounds, lie buried amongst the friends and neighbors whose paths criscrossed theirs. See how Ralph Waldo Emerson’s ideas about the harmony of man and nature play out in the landscape architecture of this National Historic Landmark. Sleepy Hollow was designed as a place for the living as well as the dead: for education, reflection, and sustenance. The rich history of the site, and the riveting stories of its inhabitants will be the focus of this two hour walk, led by local historian, Jayne Gordon.
We will meet at the Prichard Gate on Bedford Street (62) opposite Partridge Lane. (Second gate on left coming from Concord Center)Good parking on the cemetery side of Bedford Street.
