Clermont historic site hosts haunted tours
GERMANTOWN >> Reservations are now open for the Legends by Candlelight Ghost Tours at Clermont State Historic Site.
The tours allow visitors to immerse themselves in history and interact with costumed interpreters portraying the “ghosts” of Clermont’s past. Tours run every half hour from 6 to 9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, Oct. 21, 22, 28 and 29. Recommended for ages 7 and older, tours are held rain or shine.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and younger, and sell out quickly. For reservations or more information, call (518) 537-4240.
Guests will be welcomed into a 1921 Halloween party complete with an eccentric spiritual medium, crystal ball, and a reproduction of a 1916 Ouija board. Then the lights go out and the house is filled with ghosts from the American Revolution. After the tour, guests can roast marshmallows over a fire surrounded by Jack-oLanterns.
