Update - October 21, 2021 - The Glebe House Museum announces ALL HOLLOW’S EVE Nights – Saturday, October 23: Cemetery Tours & Haunted Museum (Rain Date: October 24) Is Sold Out.
In order to maintain proper social distancing & current safety standards we will not be able to accommodate walk-ins.
A Limited Number of Timed Tickets are still available for:
Saturday, October 30: The Witch of Woodbury & Friends w/the Haunted Museum.
NO WALK-INS WILL BE ACCEPTED
These one night only events are sure to bring out the ghost, goblins and other scary creatures that go bump in the night, and are guaranteed to cause nightmares in even the bravest souls.
October 23: Cemetery Tours: Led by lantern light through a trail of luminaries, attendees will tour the ancient cemetery with their spirit guide visiting the final resting places of some of Woodbury’s notable and not-so notable residents. You will walk amongst the dead in burying grounds over 350 years old and hear stories of those mortal remains that lie beneath your feet as their spirits rise for the occasion and are dying to share their true-yet often-dark tales. Meet the town historian William Cothren, who wrote 3 volumes of Woodbury’s history and the Leatherman who roamed through much of western Connecticut in the late 1800s, and made numerous stops in Woodbury. Doctor Orton, who practiced medicine over 250 years ago, will be happy to diagnosis your condition and apply some leeches to your body. The majority of the other spirits lived in Woodbury during the time of the Revolutionary War. Each tour is unique and different, since one never knows where an earth bound spirit might be found in this ancient burying ground, listed as one of the most haunted sites of Connecticut. Weather appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes are recommended so that you don’t become dead on your feet during the 40- minute walking portion of your evenings experience.
Cemetery tours will leave the grounds of the Museum every ten minutes beginning at 5:30PM. The final tour will be at 8:30. Space is limited.
October 30: The Witch of Woodbury & Friends: Linda Barr-Gale will bring the “Witch of Woodbury”, Moll Cramer, to life in a special presentation in the Glebe Yard. Pull up a hay bale, bring a blanket, grab a chair and gather round’ the cauldron to hear her tale. This year Moll will be joined by her fellow witches who were put to trial in Colonial Connecticut.
*Presentations will take place beginning at 5:45 pm and continue on a rolling basis with short breaks in between.
**In the event of inclement weather this event will take place at the pavilion in Hollow Park - located directly behind the Museum and adjacent to parking.
Both Nights: Haunted Museum & Garden: The 275 - year old Glebe House has a history of hauntings. Recently, paranormal investigators from Ghost Hunters, Inc. spent an evening in the Museum. With the help of a psychic, an empath, special equipment and cameras they determined the presence of spirits throughout the three story house. For this event the Museum is professionally staged to create a unique experience and the themes are designed to be different each year to delight visitors again and again. Dare to walk through the frightful rooms filled with special effects and creepy things that are guaranteed to be hair-raising.
When Gertrude Jekyll designed the famous garden at the Glebe, she never thought werewolves and swamp creatures would live among the flowers. Enter Creepy Land and see if you can survive the game!
Haunted Museum & Garden will be open 5:30 – 9:30 pm both nights.
