Sunnyside: Home of the 'Legend'

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

This daytime event is the perfect prelude to an evening at Blaze, Horseman's Hollow, or Irving's "Legend." As you tour both floors of Irving's fascinating home, you will hear stories about what inspired Irving to write his most famous short story and see works of art inspired by The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The tour also features a display of previously unseen objects from HHV's collection—from special edition books to pop culture artifacts—related to the famous story. Historic games and Headless Horseman art activities are great for families. Concessions are also available for a picnic and a stroll through the Romantic landscape.

Recommended for all ages.
