NORWALK, Conn. -- The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum in Norwalk will feature Ghostly Sightings Tours and Macabre Tales of the Victorian era from Oct. 21 to Oct. 30.
"Macabre Tales of the Victorian Era" is a series of Halloween tours that focus on the history of the house and the chilling customs and mourning traditions of the Victorian era.
Visitors also may run into the Mansion’s ghosts, who are haunted by the darker memories that are part of the rarely spoken history of the Lockwood and Mathews families, according to a release from the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum.
These ghosts will wander throughout the first and second floors of the Mansion, but only during very special and spooky Halloween tours.
Tours are $20 per person. Children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Advance payment and reservation are required.
To register and for tour times, visit www.lockwoodmathewsmansion.com, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 203-838- 9799.
The museum’s 2016 cultural and educational programs are made possible in part by funding from the museum's founding patrons: The Estate of Mrs. Cynthia Clark Brown; the Museum’s Distinguished Benefactors: Klaff’s, the Xerox Foundation, and the Maurice Goodman Foundation.
The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum, a National Historic Landmark, is at 295 West Ave., Norwalk.
