During the most haunting time of the year, dare to experience Things That Go Bump in the Night Ghost Tours on Friday and Saturday evenings in October. Join an eerie lantern-lit tour of the shadowy museum grounds. Hear your guide recount the many mysteries and ghostly happenings that have occurred in the 19th-century historic village, as in the tale of a young ghost who roams the rooms of Bump Tavern or the mysterious early morning strikes on the anvil in the Blacksmith Shop. During each tour, be prepared to hold your breath as Michael Henrici brings one of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic tales to life. Tours run every half-hour from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m.
The event is inspired by Louis C. Jones’s classic collection of folk tales, Things That Go Bump in the Night, a timeless record of haunted history and restless spirits in New York State.
