South Street, Peekskill

Peekskill’s oldest church dominated Drum Hill when it was constructed in the 1840’s. Its spire, once visible for miles, has since been overshadowed by Drum Hill School and cramped by the congestion of today’s urban Peekskill.

Sleepy Hollow’s Old Dutch Church

Route 9, Sleepy Hollow

Patentee Frederick Philipse was one of the richest men in the Colonies when he and his second wife, Catherine Van Cortlandt, built this church in 1699. Years later, in 1829, Washington Irving alluded to the Old Dutch Church in his Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The stone construction and the gambrel roof reflect the Dutch origins of the early parishioners; the gothic arches over the windows, however, conform to the fashion of Washington Irving’s 19th Century Tarrytown.
