"Not far from this village, perhaps about two miles, there is a little valley or rather lap of land among high hills, which is one of the quietest places in the whole world." This is how Washington Irving describes his imaginary village of Sleepy Hollow in New York, that over time was made real in his honor. In this episode Jennie and Dianne are joined by Sleepy Hollow's superintendent Jim Logan and tour and event director, Christina Orbán-La Salle. They share the Ordinary Extraordinary history of New York's famous Sleepy Hollow Cemetery and the stories of those buried beneath its soil from Washington Irving, the author who inspired the name of the cemetery and the village itself, to some of America's wealthiest Victorian socialites such as the Astor and Rockefeller families.
