Owen Jones – Sleepy Hollow Cemetery

IMG_5784

I love ostentatious gravestones. You have to realize that this was not done by machine and therefore someone actually had to carve this monstrosity by hand. The craftsmanship is amazing and you can see the top of this grave just about anywhere in Sleepy Hollow.

Owen Jones was a prominent New York City dry goods merchant and his grave definitely shows his wealth. It’s an amazing grave to see up close and one of my favorite stops in the cemetery.
