  • In 1835, Washington Irving, author of such classics as The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle, bought a two-room Dutch stone house on the banks of the Hudson. He expanded and extensively remodeled the building and made the grounds more picturesque, creating hills, a pond, and a meandering stream and waterfall. Guides in period dress lead tours of Washington Irving's Sunnyside cottage, giving visitors one of the most authentic experiences of mid-19th century life anywhere in America. A Path Through History attraction.
