At Philipsburg Manor, the historic site in Sleepy Hollow has been transformed from a plantation in the 1700s to a terrifying town of witches and the undead all driven mad by the headless horseman.

“This is the devil’s throne here,” site director Tom Thacker said while giving WCBS 880 reporter a tour of the Horseman’s Hollow attraction.

Cioffi commented, “This is very spooky. We’re going through a little arch of skulls.”

Thacker explained why the historic Hudson Valley went the very gory route, saying, “We decided that we wanted to create an event for adults of all ages who appreciate a scary, haunted experience.”
