Sleepy Hollow was once a working farm of 270 acres. Called “The Plantation” on the deed, this property was purchased by Jesse Payne Lewis from David Cherry circa 1822. The farm consisted of a farmhouse (rumored to be a log cabin built by David Cherry of Pendleton), smokehouse, barn, and outbuildings. Jesse Lewis is the one credited with naming the farm “Sleepy Hollow.”
