"Fall Haunted Lantern Tour"

Oct. 6, 2017 – 8:00 -11:00 pm

at Lake County History Center, 415 Riverside Drive, Painesville, Ohio 44077
Do ghosts and spirits really haunt the former Lake County Poorhouse? Come take a walk through the long dark corridors with nothing but a candlelight to illuminate the way. Escape into the past as our guides provide you with an eerie yet fun-filled adventure! You'll visit all the locations around the Lake County History Center where shadows and ghostly figures have said to have been sighted. You'll go to off-limits areas where many have reported hearing creepy sounds and feeling unseen hands touch them. You'll hear stories of unbelievable historically documented events that have taken place in the past, including those in the infirmary and attic. And, we'll even visit the foreboding cells used in the bygone days of the Lake County Poorhouse. We will demonstrate and you may borrow "ghost hunting" equipment, such as EMF detectors and dowsing rods, while on your tour! (or bring your own equipment – paranormal activity has been documented many times on previous explorations of the LCHS)

The exclusive lantern-lit tour is only open to 20 participants. This event is not suitable for children.

Tickets: Adults: $20 Buy online, by mail, by phone or in person at the Lake History Center. Need more information? Call 440-639-2945 .
