"(The Manor House) formed the western boundary of the Belden's Crabapple Farm, which nestled down in a hollow. Honey's home was luxurious and very beautiful, but Trixie preferred the little white frame house where she lived with her three brothers and their parents."


                                   -- The Mysterious Visitor


Julie Campbell modeled Trixie's home, Crabapple Farm, on her own home, Wolf Hollow, just outside Ossining, New York, in the Hudson River Valley.  Crabapple Farm was described as situated just outside "Sleepyside," a name created by combining "Sleepy Hollow" and "Sunnyside," the name of Washington Irving's home. The pages linked to below have pictures of Wolf Hollow and surroundings, taken in May, 2003.
