Walk through the darkened 19th-century village by lantern, stopping at the Blacksmith's Shop, Bump Tavern, and other buildings. Hear stories associated with the museum's buildings, such as the tale of a young ghost sighted by staff and guests in Bump Tavern and the mysterious early morning strikes on the blacksmith's anvil. Some of the ghostly tales are adapted from the Louis C. Jones classic, Things That Go Bump in the Night, a timeless record of haunted history and restless spirits in New York State. During each tour, be prepared to hold your breath as Michael Henrici brings Edgar Allan Poe's classic "The Tell-Tale Heart" to life. The tour traverses uneven ground in the dark.
