The winter chill may be causing you to shiver but that’s no comparison to the haunting goose bumps you’ll be experiencing at The Mark Twain House & Museum. February marks the return of the Graveyard Shift Ghost Tours for a limited two-day run on Friday, February 22nd & Saturday, February 23rd. Reports continue to circulate about the ghostly apparitions, mysterious bangs, cigar smoke and other frightening phenomena at the museum, prompting the Mark Twain House to invite supernatural lovers inside for a peak.
You don’t believe that the Mark Twain House is haunted? Take the Syfy Channel’s word, featuring the museum twice on the Ghost Hunters series. The worrisome events within the museum have also been investigated by Ghost Hunters Academy and will soon be featured on the Biography Channel’s My Ghost Story.
Are you brave enough to step into one of the museum’s ghost tours? If so, you will hear creepy tales and will learn about Mark Twain’s own fascination with the supernatural. During the Gilded Age, spiritualism and ghostly influence were common. People reveled in the idea of uncertainty, rampant materialism and spectacular credulity, very much like today.
If you are one of those skeptics who doesn’t believe in ghost stories, The Mark Twain House & Museum invites you to come experience the ghoulish tales first hand. The hour long guided tour will take you through the main house of the Clemens mansion, the Servant’s Wing and down into the basement, a territory that is normally off limits to visitors. Join a ghost tour if you dare! Call (860) 280-3130.
