The Sleepy Hollow Woods Garden and Craft Club of Annandale, Virginia was organized in 1971 to stimulate interest in gardening, promote horticultural best practices, share a love of creating handicrafts, and to improve and beautify the landscape in the Sleepy Hollow Woods neighborhood. Members hosted meetings in their homes, held luncheons and parties, toured historic sites, and maintained an active presence supporting the neighborhood. The club disbanded in Summer 2018 and the group assembled one final time to donate their records to the Virginia Room on July 19, 2018.
