The Ticonderoga Historical Society will end its program year and celebrate the Halloween Season with a free program entitled “Haunted Adirondacks: A Horrible History” on Friday, October 18 at 7 p.m. at the Hancock House, 6 Moses Circle, Ticonderoga.
“The scariest stories usually have their basis in historical fact,” said program presenter Diane O’Connor. “From the well-known story of Duncan Campbell at Fort Ticonderoga to Lord Howe to lesser known ghosts across the region, this program will look at our local history in a spine-tingling way.”
Specters from Crown Point, Mineville, Elizabethtown, Westport, Ticonderoga, Lake Placid, Lake George, and other regional locations will be included. All have ghostly – and ghastly stories to relate, according to O’Connor.
Reservations are not necessary to attend the free program, but seats may be reserved ahead of time by calling 518-585-7868 or via e-mail to tihistory@bridgepoint1com. Refreshments will be served.
As a regional institution dedicated to preserving and interpreting the history of the Adirondacks and Lake Champlain Region, the Ticonderoga Historical Society encompasses a four-story museum with substantial collections and research library, as well as an active educational program series available for community organizations.
