On Saturday we were back in Concord MA and made the pilgrimage to Sleepy Hollow cemetery. We passed through the Authors’ Gate, climbed up to Authors’ Ridge and went looking for the Alcott graves. It was nearly 6pm and we had the place to ourselves so it felt all the more special to stand a while at the resting place of Louisa and her Little Women.
Other famous writers buried on the ridge are Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry Thoreau and Emerson, contemporaries and neighbours of the Alcotts.

Great post! I love that you shared these pictures of your visit to the authors’ graves. That adventure is one I need to have on my bucket list!
This is only my first time on your blog, but it’s excellent so far. You and I seem to share common literary tastes! If you’d like to visit my blog, I’m hosting a Louisa May Alcott reading challenge that might whet your appetite. 🙂
Hi Tarissa, it was very moving to visit Sleepy Hollow and even more so to visit the Alcott House. Hope you get to do it sometime. Will def pop into your blog! Cheers, M-L
