Milford Museum announced that tickets are now available for the Second Annual Milford Walking Ghost Tour, planned for Saturday, October 23. The tours will begin at The Towers, located at 101 Northwest Front Street and end at Causey Mansion, located at 2 Causey Avenue.
“This was such a fun event last year,” Claudia Leister, Executive Director of the Milford Museum said. “We sold out so quickly we had to add additional tour guides last year.”
There are two tour times available for the event. The first tours will depart The Towers promptly at 5:00 PM, ending at 7 PM. The second tours will begin promptly at 7:30 PM and end at 9:30 PM.
“On the tour, you will hear some spooky stories about Milford,” Leister said. “Many people are unaware that there have been some strange occurrences in town, including several murders and suspicious deaths. We will tell the story of some of these occurrences and talk about some of the older homes in town that are said to be haunted.”
The tours will walk through downtown Milford, winding through a few different areas with tour guides leading the way. Upon arrival at Causey Mansion, guests will be provided refreshments and be able to talk to Milford historians, asking questions about what they learned and hearing more about Milford’s interesting history.
“We fully expect this event to sell out very quickly,” Leister said. “We are also asking participants to get into the spirit of Halloween and wear a costume for the tour. Be sure the costume is comfortable and that you can wear good walking shoes. We also recommend bringing a flashlight as some of the areas where we will walk are dark.”
Tickets are $20 each and include the tour as well as refreshments at Causey Mansion. They may be purchased in person at the Milford Museum or online at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/milford-walking-ghost-tours-tickets-179586948397. There is a small processing fee for tickets purchased online. For more information, contact the Milford Museum at 302-424-1080. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM.
