The Original Knickerbocker: Washington Irving & "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" 

Did you know Washington Irving lived through a viral epidemic, too?  And why is he called the Original Knickerbocker anyway?  Come on this one-hour walking tour and find out!  

Learn more about the talented Mr. Irving, his enormous impact on American Literature and the enduring appeal of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow", which recently celebrated its Bicentennial!  

It's a fun way to spend an hour exploring the south end of the cemetery!
