Like all lighthouses on the Hudson, the 1883 Lighthouse at Sleepy Hollow was designed as a “family station,” as the keeper and his family lived in the five-story structure year-round. Tarrytown Light, also known as Kingsland Point Light and Sleep Hollow Light is a sparkplug lighthouse that is part of a County Park for Westchester County, New York. It is open to the public.
