Sleepy Hollow Cemetery
Concord's only public cemetery was established in 1855 when Ralph Waldo Emerson gave a dedication speech three decades before his death. He was buried here in 1882. The natural garden style of the cemetery was inspired by Emerson's poetry. Other very famous people laid to rest here include Louisa May Alcott, Henry David Thoreau, and Nathaniel Hawthorne. The cemetery is open every day from 7 AM to 5 PM.
