Featuring the work and lives of Charles Dickens, Edgar Allan Poe and Washington Irving, step away from the screens and join us by the fireside for three special evenings in the 19th-century literary world.


The Legend of Sleepy Hollow with Washington Irving

November 7 & November 8

Join us for an evening of spooky tales and conversation with Mr. Washington Irving! Sitting by the fireside, guests will hear Mr. Irving read one of his most famous stories, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” He will also share tales of his exciting life and the people he encountered, including mentoring writers like Edgar Allan Poe, as well as his travels through Indian Territory in Oklahoma during Jackson’s presidency. Following the program, guests will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with Mr. Irving.



Doors will open 30 minutes prior to each performance. Wine and beverages will be available for purchase. Present your event receipt at the ticket office for a $4 discount off general admission to Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage on the day of the event.
