"Sleepy Hollow Revisited"
Presented by Chris Hart, actor and portrayer of Ichabod Crane.
It is a well-known tale, how Ichabod Crane was spirited away by the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow. In this spooky Halloween program, Ichabod Crane returns to Sleepy Hollow many years later to tell, from his perspective, what exactly happened that fateful autumn night.
The meeting is open to the public.
We have hundreds of special artifacts on display and over 12 rooms in our four buildings that offer theme contents. Sunday tours begin at the entrance to Pearce Building at 208 South Broadway.
Museum Tours are given from
May through the end of October each Sunday from 1-4pm and every Second Saturday from 1-4pm.
Both group and individual tours are also available by appointment.
Each year, over 1,000 passengers including school children, out-of-town visitors, and residents take advantage of our various trolley tours:
with plans to add tours for Charles Burchfield and Alan Freed.
The trolley participates in community events and is rented for weddings, birthdays, reunions, and other celebrations.

The Salem Historical Society is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.

These donations are always used wisely and are greatly appreciated.
