A Visit to Sleepy Hollow

Yesterday my lovely, my best friend and I paid a visit to a sleepy town made famous by Washington Irving's short story 'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow'. I've always had a fondness for the story and always wanted to visit the town, which is less than an hour from where we live.







The town itself is small and quaint. A lot of small houses and not much to see. The Sleepy Hollow Cemetery and old Dutch Church on the other hand are fascinating and beautiful. We lost ourselves there for a few hours.















Washington Irving, who wrote the 'Legend of Sleepy Hollow', sleeps here.




There are so many beautiful monuments and statues I could over load any internet connection with photos. If you'd like to see more, the entire set can be found on my Flickr.
