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 Victorian fascination of 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.
Visitors may run into the Mansion’s ghosts, who are haunted by dark memories 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.
Tour times are every half hour at 5:30 p.m., 6:00 p.m., 6:30 p.m., 7:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.
