Witches, Vampires & Ghost Tours at The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion
October 20, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm$20.00
Featuring a troupe of living history volunteers led by Halloween co-chairs Midge Lopat and Rose Carroll, the Witches, Vampires, & Ghosts Tours at the Mansion will highlight the history of witchcraft, from colonial times to the Victorian era, the New England Vampire Panic, the darker Mansion history, and real-life ghostly sightings.
The tours will take place inside the Mansion cloaked in darkness, on the first and second floors, where interpreters, dressed in costume, will lead visitors by candlelight and share the haunting history of Connecticut’s witch-hunts and their famed trials. Tours will expose how The New England Vampire Panic began and reveal several ghost sightings that have taken place at the Mansion in the past several decades.
Ghosts, Vampires, and Witches will share center stage with the Mansion’s interpreters during these very spooky tours. As doors open and close, rooms are entered and left behind, visitors can expect the unexpected. Ticket buyers beware…visitors may run into a Victorian-era witch, vampire, or ghost, but only during these very special and spooky Halloween tours.
Dates: October 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, 29
5:00 & 5:30 tours are children friendly. Children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
