The dead dined with the living last night in celebration of the history of two neighboring villages.
Dozens attended the first 'Dinner with the Dead' at the Lyndhurst Mansion in Tarrytown.
The Sleepy Hollow Cemetery Historic Fund and The Historical Society sponsored the event, paying tribute to the departed who have contributed to the history of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow. "We're trying to bring history alive for people in a way that they might not otherwise experience. And it's a wonderful opportunity for people to see what we have to offer and meet some of the characters that are a part of our local history," says organizer Christina Orban-LaSalle.
Organizers say they thought holding the event right before Halloween would be a great time to wake up departed residents for some fun with the living.
