Tarrytown, NY General (3)
Washington Irving joked that the name “Tarrytown” comes from the tendency of colonial farmers to tarry at the tavern on market days. In the “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” the school teacher, Ichabod Crane, encounters the Headless Horseman near the Captors’ Monument at Patriots’ Park.
