travel42 Port Guide: Sleepy Hollow

Sleepy Hollow travel42 Port of Call Guide

The picturesque landmark of Sleepy Hollow in Mount Pleasant on the Hudson River is immortalized in author Washington Irving's stories, particularly “The Headless Horseman,” who is rumored to be buried in the village's Old Dutch Church burying grounds.

River cruisers also appreciate a visit to Sunnyside (Irving's home) and Phillipsburg Manor (with its re-creation of 17th- and 18th-century life).
