The marker honors Washington Irving’s “Sleepy Hollow” character ‘Ichabod Crane’—who was patterned after Jesse Merwin, the original Kinderhook Schoolteacher who taught at the earlier one-room school here— Actor Robert Ian Mackenzie will read an excerpt from Irving’s short story, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” highlighted by an actual visit from the Headless Horseman.
