I took these photographs on September 22, 2017 inside the Old Dutch Church, in Sleepy Hollow, NY.

I spent most of the morning taking photographs in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. As I was leaving, I wanted to take photos of the outside of the Old Dutch Church. A very nice woman and man saw me with my camera, and told me I could go into the church because it was open for a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new handicap ramp that had been installed.

I was thrilled! The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, by Washington Irving, is one of my favorite stories. Sleepy Hollow, NY is near the Tappan Zee Bridge and is about a 45 minute drive for me to get to. It is exciting enough just to get to see the village, bridge, and church where the story took place, and to roam around the cemeteries. But to get to go inside the Old Dutch Church was one of those perfect timing lucky moments!

They also mentioned there is a Christmas mass held in the Old Dutch Church. Although it would be a bit of a drive for me to undertake, and Winter weather can be unpredictable around here at that time of year, I'm going to keep it in mind.
