Sleepy Hollow Cemetery

The burial ground in which the unfortunate Ichabod Crane sought refuge is the yard of the Old Dutch Church, not the adjacent Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, which had not been established at the time Irving wrote the Legend. The burying ground is of course the purported haunt of a certain headless Hessian, but also the resting place of local citizens who likely inspired Irving's characters of Katrina Van Tassel, Brom Bones, and others in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
