It’s known as the setting of Washington Irving’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” The author is buried in spooky Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. It is also home to Kykuit, the Rockefeller family estate which has gardens with 20th-century sculptures. You can also find the Old Dutch Church which is the oldest church in New York state. Northeast, vast Rockefeller State Park Preserve includes a network of carriage roads traversing woodlands, fields and streams. Sleepy Hollow is often listed as a top spot for Halloween season getaways and (because its located in Hudson Valley) to see fall foliage. Defying the passage of time, this magical area has managed to preserve much of the history and natural beauty which have always drawn people to it. In addition to its great history and fabulous legends, the village offers a wide variety of outdoor adventures and activities, with parks, forests, rivers, lakes, streams and trails along one of the most scenic stretches of the Hudson River—from trout fishing to horseback riding, to biking, boating, hiking, or just escaping into the woodlands of Sleepy Hollow. The town was called North Tarrytown until 1996 when the village voted to rename it Sleepy Hollow.. Many people who visit Sleepy Hollow also visit its neighbor, Tarrytown which also gets into the Halloween spirit. Sleepy Hollow, being in Hudson NY, was named on Time's list of the world's 100 greatest places in 2021.
