The Community Connection - - FRONT PAGE - From Alanna Reeser Brinton Lodge

In the spirit of Hal­loween, Brinton Lodge will be of­fer­ing two ghost tours this Oc­to­ber.

The Free Love Val­ley Ghost Tour, new for this year, ex­plores the true events of the Bat­tle Axe move­ment, a reli­gious cult that set­tled nearby in the 1800s. Brinton Lodge will also of­fer Can­dle­light Ghost Tours, of­fer­ing peo­ple an op­por­tu­nity for their own close en­counter with the spir­its who haunt there.

The Free Love Val­ley Ghost Tour is a bus tour through the nearby area once known as Free Love Val­ley, named for a reli­gious cult in the 1800s that tore the com­mu­nity apart with their un­ortho­dox be­liefs and left be­hind a legacy of bro­ken hearts and venge­ful spir­its.

The tour be­gins and ends at Brinton Lodge and pauses at a num­ber of haunted sites that were part of this strange but true story. This tour is of­fered Sun­days from Oct. 7 to Nov. 4. Tick­ets are $25 per per­son.

The Ghost Tour of Brinton Lodge is a can­dle­light tour of the 300-year-old man­sion, where peo­ple will hear the ghost sto­ries that have ac­cu­mu­lated over the course of its col­or­ful his­tory, un­cover who might be haunt­ing the build­ing and why, and use di­vin­ing rods to com­mu­ni­cate with the spir­its. This tour is of­fered Fri­days, Satur­days and Sun­days from Oct. 5 to Nov. 10. Tick­ets are $20 per per­son.

Hid­den River Brew­ing Com­pany’s third an­nual Hal­loween Mas­quer­ade Bash will take place at Brinton Lodge on Sat­ur­day, Oct. 27, from 9 p.m. to 12 a.m. The tick­eted event will in­clude a mu­sic per­for­mance by Tin Bird Choir, a tarot card reader, a ma­gi­cian, hors d’oeu­vres and more, all set within the haunt­ingly beau­ti­ful rooms of Brinton Lodge.
