"The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is Irving's story about a superstitious schoolmaster's terrifying encounter with a headless horseman. The world in which Irving wrote only vaguely resembles the one we know today, yet the landscape in Sleepy Hollow is one we instantly recognize. Ride along as Connors explores the crossroads where fact and legend meet. You'll be spirited away!
