Old Dutch Church Of Sleepy Hollow

Old Dutch Church Of Sleepy Hollow

Surrounded by (and often confused with) Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, the church and its burying ground are in fact a separate property owned by The Reformed Church of the Tarrytowns. The gravestone of Catriena Ecker Van Tessel, namesake for Katrina Van Tassel in "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow", is located near the church. Annual reading of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" (tickets required) happens on the Friday and Saturday before Halloween. There are also free tours of the church Sundays at 2 pm, May through October. For information on candlelight Christmas Eve, Easter, and summer services, telephone the church office at 914-631-4497. Image courtesy of the J&J Roadshow.
