The Legend Behind the 'Legend'

During October, Sunnyside celebrates its connection to Washington Irving's classic tale, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

A daytime visit here is the perfect prelude to an evening at Blaze, Horseman’s Hollow, or Irving’s ‘Legend.’ Irving’s fascinating home – a colorful blend of architectural styles – will showcase numerous objects related to Irving’s famous story. Visitors can enjoy a shadow puppet performance of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and experience one of Irving's spooky tales on a walk through the woods.

Recommended for all ages.
