This town holds a special place in American folklore. Sleepy Hollow was made legendary by Washington Irving’s tale of the same name. Thanks to the popularity of the story, the town has maintained much of its history and small town charm.

Although some like to visit because of its reputation as the most haunted place in the world! While there, be sure to visit the Old Dutch Church, Philipsburg Manor House, and the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery – where Elizabeth Arden, Brooke Astor, and Andrew Carnegie are buried.
