You know the Headless Horseman rides through historic Sleepy Hollow Cemetery on crisp autumn nights. But he’s not the only local with a dark tale to tell. “Murder, Mayhem and Mild Misdeeds” introduces a few of Sleepy Hollow Cemetery's other fallen angels and uncovers some malicious acts perpetrated by the cemetery’s long quiet residents.
You’ll meet both victims and perpetrators: the flamboyant businesswoman remembered as "the wickedest woman in New York," a debonair counterfeiter, and the celebrated opera singer who was alleged to have assaulted, extorted, and killed various of her seven husbands.
Join Sleepy Hollow Cemetery’s resident raconteur and guide Linda Ford for a slide show and lecture that reveals some of the shocking stories hidden behind hushed, stately vaults and pretty little headstones.
This program is open to the public but it is geared toward adults.
