« All Events

October 30, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

The Princess of Lamballe, best friend and lady-in-waiting to Marie-Antoinette, reflects on an age of revolutions across France, England and America and offers a dramatic abridged reading of Washington Irving’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”

Please bring your own lawn chairs or blankets for this outdoors program with Alisa Dupuy of the Ladies of History: https://www.theladiesofhistory.com/home

Following the program, learn about and visit the historic gravestones at Old Dutch Parsonage restored in spring 2022 by a stone mason with experience at historic sites across New Jersey and New York including the Old Dutch Church at Sleepy Hollow. This restoration was made possible by a gift of the New Jersey Society of the Sons of the Revolution to the Wallace House and Old Dutch Parsonage Association.

The Wallace House and Old Dutch Parsonage Association are dedicated supporters of Wallace House & Old Dutch Parsonage State Historic Sites marking 125 years of civic engagement and leadership in the historic preservation of Wallace House & Old Dutch Parsonage beginning with the Revolutionary Memorial Society of New Jersey in 1897.
