Join Renfrew for an immersive historical experience set in the year 1820. Follow the flickering glow of lanterns through the crisp autumn air to the Royer House Kitchen where you’ll be greeted with the warm hospitality of our cheerful hosts dressed in early 19th century attire. Partake in a tasty sweet bread whilst enjoying a cup of hot cider ladled from a kettle upon the hearth as we gather in the finely furnished 1812 dining room. Greet fellow guests and imagine yourself transported back in time to a back country tavern, dimly illuminated by candlelight, and brace yourself to hear Washington Irving’s thrilling tale of the Headless Horseman!

Program Notes

Dramatic reading of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow presented by actor Jeff Greenawalt on Tuesday, October 29, 2024. Limited seating available at two select times: 5:00-6:30pm and 7:00-8:30pm. Doors open thirty (30) minutes prior to showtime. Check-in at the Museum House kitchen porch. Pre-registration is required. Refunds available until seven (7) days prior to performance. No exceptions.

Due to the historic nature of a traditional live dramatic reading with one performer and no set changes, this hour-long program is not recommended for children or those with limited attention spans. We suggest older teens and adults will most enjoy this experience. Seating will be on metal folding chairs, so please ensure your own comfort and bring along a cushion if you wish.

Free parking is available at the Visitors Center lot located off of PA-16/East Main Street/Buchanan Trail East. Overflow parking is in Renfrew’s Lower Lot off of Welty Road.  Guests should expect low lighting and slightly uneven terrain over grass and gravel as they make their way to the Museum House Kitchen porch. We apologize, but the Museum House is a historic building and not wheelchair accessible. Guests using canes or walkers should note there is one standard step to get onto the porch and a low threshold into the kitchen. The dining room is then ramped from the kitchen. No restrooms are located inside the Museum House. Please avail yourself of the restrooms located at the Visitors Center barn prior to arriving for the program.

To protect our historic building and artifact collections, Renfrew requests no photography and/or video take place inside the Museum House. Food and beverages are limited to the Museum House kitchen and dining room. All other rooms within the Museum House will be closed during the performance.
