Legends and Hauntings walking tours at the Fairfield Museum

Did witches live in Fairfield? Are there ghosts in the Sun Tavern? Did body snatching happen in the cemetery? Find out when the Fairfield Museum hosts its annual Legends and Hauntings Walking Tours on Friday, Oct. 28 and Saturday, Oct. 29, at 6 p.m.

As night descends, Fairfield Museum docents will share haunting legends, superstitions and local folklore. Brave souls may even choose to stand on the site where townsfolk tested alleged witches in the 17th century.

“Hear stories from urban legends to folk traditions that have been passed down over the years,” said Walt Matis, a Fairfield native and the Museum’s Program and Volunteer Coordinator. “The idea is to have a good time…and to help you think about the things that go bump in the night!”           

The Legends and Hauntings Walking Tours will run from 6-8 p.m. and begin at the Museum, 370 Beach Road. Attendees are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes. Please register early, as this popular event does fill quickly. The cost is $10 for museum members and $13 for non-members. Register online at fmhc_hauntingtours.eventbrite.com or at Fairfieldhistory.org or call 203-259-1598. Advance registration is required.
