Enjoy “Sprit Stories” by lantern light at Spiegel Grove

Press Staff Writer

        Hear frightful local and regional ghost stories on a nighttime stroll through the grounds of the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums by lantern light during “Spirit Stories at Spiegel Grove” on Friday, Oct. 30.
        This year, the guided lantern walks will also make two stops in the historic Hayes Home, where visitors will learn about the Victorian era – the time when President Rutherford and First Lady Lucy Hayes lived. Victorians, the “rock stars of death culture,” sometimes took pictures of the dead, conducted séances and participated in other practices that might seem creepy today.
        The event will be held from 7-10 p.m. with tours lasting one hour. The last tour will depart at 9 p.m. Participants can also enjoy a campfire and popcorn, cider and hot chocolate and pictures with “ghosts” at the spirit photography station.
        Tours are limited to 10 people per time slot, and attendees must wear face coverings.
        Tickets are required and cost $10 for Hayes Presidential members and $15 for non-members. They may be purchased online at www.rbhayes.org/events/2020/10/30/events/spirit-stories-at-spiegel-grove/. Advance tickets are recommended. Tickets will be sold the night of the event at the museum front desk, pending availability.
        “Spirit Stories at Spiegel Grove” is sponsored by KF Construction.
        The Hayes Presidential Library & Museums, located at Spiegel Grove at the corner of Hayes and Buckland Avenues in Fremont, is America’s first presidential library and the forerunner of the federal presidential library system. It is partially funded by the state of Ohio and affiliated with the Ohio History Connection.
