Classic Evening Lantern Tour 2022


Classic Evening Lantern Tour



Step back in time and explore the cemetery by kerosene lantern light! This two-hour evening tour gives you a great overview of why Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is so famous.




You’ll visit titans of industry like Andrew Carnegie and William Rockefeller, meet Washington Irving whose famous short story gave our village its very name, see the resting place of two-term Chicago Mayor Walter Gurnee, and learn about two people vital to the success of Wells Fargo and American Express, and much more. Along the way, admire beautiful art, architecture and cool cemetery symbolism.



Please note that the Classic Daytime Tour is the same route as the Classic Evening Lantern tour. The content is exactly the same - it just starts in a different location.


Dates:  Fridays and Saturdays from 8:00 - 10:00 p.m. in September. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in October from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. - 12 midnight.


Location: Sleepy Hollow Cemetery North Gate, 540 North Broadway.


Parking:  There is plenty of free parking inside the gate.


Skill level: This tour takes place in the dark.  The route includes several steep hills, some stairs, as well as grassy, unpaved and gravel roads.  There is no place to sit down during the tour.  The route is approximately 1.5 miles.  Due to the challenging nature of the route, it is not recommended for children under the age of 10.


NOTE: UNLESS IT IS A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO LEAVE DURING THE TOUR AS THE GATES ARE LOCKED ONCE THE TOUR BEGINS.  PLEASE CONSIDER YOUR OWN ABILITIES - AS WELL AS EVERYONE ELSE'S IN YOUR GROUP - BEFORE PURCHASING TICKETS.


Refunds, exchanges: All sales are final. No exchanges or refunds unless tour is canceled.


Weather: Sleepy Hollow Cemetery walking tours run rain or shine.
