Where

Founded circa 1685, this historic Dutch church and graveyard were the setting for Washington Irving’s short story “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” The church’s 2.5-acre burying ground is the purported haunt of the headless horseman as well as the resting place of local citizens who likely inspired Irving’s characters of Katrina Van Tassel, Brom Bones, and others in “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”
