Victorians were known for their riveting ghost stories and Gothic horror. From Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Body Snatcher to Oscar Wilde’s The Canterville Ghost, readers in the 19th century were deeply engrossed in dark tales from the other side.
In keeping with this Victorian fascination with unexplained phenomena, the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum’s Halloween tours will focus on ghost sightings as they relate to the house during the 19th century as well as its more recent history, and the compelling ghost stories that are part of Connecticut’s legends.
— an announcement from the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum
Visitors may run into the mansion’s ghosts, who are haunted by the darker memories that are part of the rarely told history of the Lockwood and Mathews families.
These ghosts will wander throughout the Mansion, but only during our very special and spooky Halloween tours.
Children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The tours take place Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays for two weekends: Oct. 18 to 20 and Oct. 25 to 27.
Tour times are at 5:30 p.m., 6 p.m., 6:30 p.m., 7:30 p.m. and 8 p.m.
