THE HAUNTED TOUR OF LINDEN PLACE MANSION

Linden Place Mansion’s “Hauntings of Linden Place” Tours are back this October

Discover the spooky side of Linden Place’s history….if you dare

 

There’s a tell-tale chill in the air and the spirits have once again descended upon Linden Place.  During the month of October, prepare to be haunted by the ghosts of Linden Place’s past!

 

As you make your way through the 200-year-old mansion’s rooms by candlelight on a self-guided tour, you might discover that the dead have always been alive at Linden Place. Learn about the rumored hauntings of Colt Farm and Colt Memorial School, about vampires roaming the towns of Rhode Island in the 1800s, and mediums summoning the return of the lost.

 

Discover the traditional mourning practices of families in Bristol by examining jewelry, dress, and photographs. Experiment with some of the “weird science” techniques practiced during the nineteenth-century.

 

In addition to self-guided tours, special docent-led tours will be offered on Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm, which covers the ghost stories associated with the DeWolf and Colt families and the eerie amusements of the nineteenth century.

 

The interactive one-hour tour will invite guests to see the entire mansion and will be followed by light refreshments.

 

Self-guided tours are offered Tuesdays through Fridays, 10am-4pm . Admission is $12, $10 for seniors and students and free for Linden Place members. 

 

Wednesday evening guided tours are offered on Oct 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th.  Admission is $15, $10 for Linden Place members.

 

Reservations are required as space is limited.
