Jonathan Kruk's rendition of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is first rate. It was great fun to listen to his dramatic and spirited performance and to watch the faces of the children in the audience, who probably had never seen anything quite like this before....More

The oldest church in New York state. Kept up very well. Volunteers are very helpful and nice. They have a nice map of the cemetery, with historical information and photos. A must for this area!

Beautiful historic church. Well maintained. I'd suggest taking time to walk parts of the cemetary as well.

If you are familiar with Irving's Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow, this graveyard is a must. Beautiful Dutch church from the late 17th century and wonderful gravestones, some in 18th century Dutch. Combine your tour with the Victorian park-like Sleep Hollow Cemetery.

Most weekends Jeannie Galdano is outside the gates of the Old Dutch Church selling reasonably priced souvenirs. Her companion has the keys to the church and will happily give a guided tour if asked.Don't forget to ask about Icabod and that crazy horseman.

It is a seasonal event but the church and graveyard are open. Jonathan Kruk is the performer and has other storytelling events around NY and Westchester County. Check it out on Facebook.
