PETERS­BURG — Pam­plin His­tor­i­cal Park & The Na­tional Mu­seum of the Civil War Sol­dier is host­ing a Hal­loween-themed event en­ti­tled “Voices from the Shad­ows” on Oct. 27-28, 2017 from 7-8:30 p.m. each evening.

Cos­tumed guides por­tray­ing “agents of death” will lead par­tic­i­pants by can­dle­light on a spinechilling tour through the his­toric Hart Farm and bat­tle­field that were fought over gen­er­a­tions ago. At each stop, guests will en­counter civil­ians and sol­diers who worked, fought and died at the his­toric site or in the lo­cal area. These ghostly fig­ures will re­count their sto­ries ac­com­pa­nied by sights and sounds from the past.

Based on true fig­ures and sto­ries of the Civil War era, the nat­u­rally haunt­ing at­mos­phere of Pam­plin His­tor­i­cal Park gives vis­i­tors a rare op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence emo­tional sto­ries of those who came be­fore us.

This event is of­fered on Fri­day, Oct. 27 and Satur­day, Oct. 28 at 7 p.m. Space is lim­ited and reser­va­tions are re­quired to en­sure a spot on the tour. The lantern-lit walk be­gins at the Hart Farm barn, 6955 Dun­can Road, in Peters­burg. Ad­mis­sion is $12 for adults, $6 for chil­dren ages 6-12, and is free for park mem­bers. The min­i­mum rec­om­mended age for this night­time tour is six years old. Flash­lights are rec­om­mended for all tour par­tic­i­pants. Call 804861-2408 for reser­va­tions and di­rec­tions.
