Nearby, we found Ralph Waldo Emerson's grave in a sea of other Emersons.
|Ralph Waldo Emerson has a distinctive grave marker, yes?|
The Emersons were a big Concord family and there are Emerson artifacts all over town. RW's study has been reconstructed in the Concord Museum, and his house, just down the street from Orchard House, is a museum in its own right...

|Can you see the Hawthornes' etchings in the glass?|
Hawthorne's grave is on Author's Ridge in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, too. His wife and daughter Una died in England and were buried there in 1871 and 1877, but were moved home to Concord in 2006 to be with Nathaniel.
