Geocache Description:

The HEssian's Head is the next in the Valero line of caches that preserve local history.

THe headless horseman was said to be a Hessian soldier that lost his head to cannon fire. Said to search for his head at night and chase Icabod Crane (but not over moving water). Incidentally Icabod is buried (for real) in a local Sleepy Hollow cemetary not far from the cache. The cache is a 4-lock tupperware container big enough for most TBs. Enjoy.
