During the month of October, prepare to be haunted by the ghosts of Linden Place’s past!
A special docent-led tour will be offered on select evenings. They’ll cover the ghost stories associated with the DeWolf and Colt families and the eerie amusements of the 19th century. The one-hour tour will invite guests to see the entire mansion and will be followed by light refreshments.
As you tour the 200-year-old mansion’s rooms by candlelight, you might discover that the dead have always lingered at Linden Place.
Learn about the rumored hauntings of Colt Farm and Colt Memorial School, vampires roaming the towns of Rhode Island in the 1800s and mediums summoning the return of the lost. Discover the traditional mourning practices of families in Bristol by examining jewelry, dress and photographs and experiment with some of the “weird science” techniques practiced during the 19th century. Finally, discover if any of Linden Place’s ghosts will be following you home.
Tours are offered Oct. 9, 10, 16, 23, 24, 29 and 30 at 6:30 p.m.
Admission is $15, $10 for Linden Place members. Reservations are required as space is limited. This tour is recommended for people ages 14 and up.
