Scary (And Fun) Times Ahead in the Land of “The Headless Horseman!”

This is one of New York’s most cherished (and frightening) Halloween rituals.  And it all takes place in Sleepy Hollow where the famous legend was born!

Philipsburg Manor transforms into a terrifying landscape ruled by the undead, the evil, and the insane. Visitors begin walking a haunted trail, stumbling upon scary scenes of a town driven mad by the Headless Horseman. The Hollow’s unfortunate inhabitants are all too ready to keep visitors from ever leaving.

Be sure and check the website for all the fun (and, yes, family friendly!) Halloween events in this historic community. Crowds swell this small burg to more than twice its normal size as thrill seekers head to the “Land of the Headless Horseman” for a truly one of a kind Halloween experience.


What:  Halloween events at Phillips Manor and other locales in Sleepy Hollow, NY

When: Each weekend until Halloween ends


About "Big Chuck"

Hi folks, this is "Big Chuck" here. I love Upstate New York! I have written several books about the region, do a lot of public speaking around the state, am an award-winning radio broadcaster (since 1989), write a bi-monthly newspaper column and give walking tours of Cooperstown, N.Y. Yes, I do keep busy! I hope we can share some Upstate stories on this blog! If you would like to take a look at my series of Upstate New York books visit
