First, I receive no compensation for any of my reviews, I go, I write. My wife and I went to the Old Dutch Church in Sleepy Hollow for a telling of W. Irving's tale, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by story teller Jonathan Kruk. You need to buy tickets in advance, (well in advance) as all the shows sell out.... More

We did a self tour basically walked around the cemetery and saw the church. There is a lot to see and appreciate. Very well kept grounds, tombs, statues, and the church is very beautiful.

A fortunate and most excellent venue for storyteller Jonathan Kruk's dramatic performance of Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Mr. Kruk’s performance was energetic and enthralling, enhanced by the live organ music of Jim Keyes. An introduction by the church's current sexton informed us that the Old Dutch Church is the home of an active congregation. Even my husband,... More

I really have no idea if there is someone interpreting there all the time or not. There is no signage to be speak of (there is an active congregation) so it is not really... More

Make sure that if you book the lantern tour that you are at the right gate. We got there with no time to spare and missed the tour because it was held at the opposite gate!! Very disappointed.

And see in person the church and churchyard from "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." Built in 1685, this is the oldest church in New York State and is still a place of worship today. Church members share this history of the building and the surrounding cemetery. Washington Irving is buried here, as are Andrew Carnegie and William Rockefeller. A must... More

Right next door to the Sleepy Hollow cemetery, containing the graves of some of the earliest inhabitants. Worth a look. Very well kept.
