About the Six Nights of Ghost Tours
During the most haunting time of the year, dare to experience Things That Go Bump in the Night Ghost Tours at The Farmers’ Museum in Cooperstown on Friday and Saturday evenings: October 13, 14, 20, 21, 27, and 28. Join an eerie lantern-lit tour of the shadowy museum grounds.
Hear your guide recount the many mysteries and ghostly happenings that have occurred in the 19th-century historic village, as in the tale of a young ghost who roams the rooms of Bump Tavern or the mysterious early morning strikes on the anvil in the Blacksmith Shop.
During each tour, be prepared to hold your breath as Michael Henrici brings Edgar Allan Poe’s classic “The Tell-Tale Heart” to life. Tours run every half-hour from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m.
The event is inspired by Louis C. Jones’s classic collection of folk tales, Things That Go Bump in the Night, a timeless record of haunted history and restless spirits in New York State.
Ghost tours are held six nights only: October 13, 14, 20, 21, 27, and 28. Tours last one hour, beginning at 5:30 p.m. and running every half-hour through 8:00 p.m.
