Ichabod Crane Schoolhouse c.1850

The Schoolhouse,  along with the Luykas Van Alen House (same property) is currently self-guided.

The Ichabod Crane Schoolhouse is a 19th-century building that served as a local single-room public school into the 1940s. In 2017, awarded a ‘Legends & Lore’ marker by the New York Folklore Society & William G. Pomeroy Foundation honoring Washington Irving’s “Sleepy Hollow” character ‘Ichabod Crane’, who was patterned after the original Kinderhook Schoolteacher — hence the schoolhouse name. The schoolhouse was originally located at the corner of 9H and Fischer Rd; it was moved to the Luykas Van Alen house property in 1974 after the Kinderhook school district centralized, and restored to its 1930s appearance.
