Fox TV's Sleepy Hollow is filming this week [09/25/2013] at Tryon Palace in New Bern, NC, marking the second time the production has used the site in as many months. Filming is scheduled throughout the day through Thursday [09/26/2013], with plans to film in the Palace Courtyard, Stanly House and Stable. Tryon Palace will remain open throughout the production but there will be a few changes to the standard tour offering. "I think there are a lot of untapped filming resources in North Carolina and we couldn't be happier that Tryon Palace is now being recognized as one of those resources," said Tryon Palace's Philippe Lafargue. "New Bern is such a historic place that it's a natural fit for a production set in colonial America. This is great exposure for Tryon Palace and New Bern, not just as a beautiful place to visit, but as a welcoming location for future film and TV productions."
Other big screen settings at N. C. State Historic Sites have included the N.C. Transportation Museum in Leatherheads, Roanoke Island Festival Park in Nights on Rodanthe and the State Capitol for the TV series Homeland. In the Wilmington area, the USS North Carolina was used for several television shows, including Revolution, One Tree Hill and the movie American Warships. Nearby Fort Fisher has been a location for Safe Haven, Eastbound & Down and the movies We're the Millers and Sleeping with the Enemy.
