CHESTERFIELD — The Chesterfield Historical Society of Virginia (CHSV) in partnership with the Chesterfield County Department of Parks and Recreation presents a special program entitled “A Chilling Candle Light Tour” at Magnolia Grange House Museum, 10020 Iron Bridge Road, Chesterfield on Saturday, Oct. 14 from 8-10 p.m.
This event is part of the Saturday lecture series program to further provide both historical and educational programming to increase awareness of the historical site.
Join Spirited History, as they lead the tour by candle light throughout Magnolia Grange. The site will be exhibiting Victorian mourning customs and the interpreter will be wearing traditional Victorian mourning apparel. Listen to the new ghostly tales and hear the spectral voices that have been captured in EVPS (electronic voice phenomena) some of which may surprise and shock you. After the tour, participants will have an opportunity to join in a paranormal investigation with Spirited History.

Please wear soft soled shoes.
