Nice historical location right near the Hudson River. Quiet location and Washington Irving's home is nearby along with Sleepy Hollow where many famous people are buried.

I sure would like to know how to purchase tickets online in advanced so we would be able to go inside Washington Irving's home? Is there a way to do that? Please advise.
