In 2006, a large statue depicting the Headless Horseman chasing Ichabod Crane was placed along Route 9 in Sleepy Hollow/Tarrytown, New York.
A not-for-profit organization Historic Hudson Valleyhas held since 1996 Legend Weekend at Philipsburg Manor, Sleepy Hollow, New York, featuring a rider portraying the headless Hessian, and a storyteller retelling The Legend of Sleepy Hollow as a historic celebration attended by thousands annually before Halloween.
For a really long time I've wanted to visit the township of Sleepy Hollow, NY. I’ve always wanted to do it more so around Halloween. Maybe I'm a geek but I’ve wanted to check out the famous Headless Horseman statue, the mysterious grave site of a person actually named Ichabod Crane, the creepy Headless Horseman bridge and other interesting attractions. Below I put a few local facts about the town which I will visit this weekend to celebrate All Hallows Eve!
