Gothic Victorian Classics!

Fridays in October (October 6, 13, 20, 27, 2017), 6-8 p.m.

Six spine-tingling gothic tales from the 1800s will be presented in various rooms throughout the Victorian mansion: Dracula, Frankenstein, Jekyll and Hyde, and works by Poe, H.G. Wells and Henry James.

Haunted Hearthstone tours present an overall spooky ambiance, which is more subtle and informational than a typical haunted house, where fright is the key goal. Hearthstone lends itself to such gatherings, as it’s old, dimly lit, has lots of nooks and crannies, is creaky in spots and is believed by some to actually be haunted.

Haunted Hearthstone has been a very popular event over the years, both scary and entertaining. The tours are family friendly and unlikely to badly scare anyone. Appropriate for age 8 and up.

Haunted Hearthstone tours will be offered from 6 to 8 p.m. on Fridays in October: 6, 13, 20 27. Anyone arriving between those hours can get a tour. No reservations are required.

Admission is $10. No passes or discounts for this special event. All proceeds are used to support the operation and programming of the Museum.
