October 30, 2022 @ 10:00 pm - October 31, 2022 @ 12:00 am
It starts with the sounds—creaking floors and slamming doors, fading footsteps down empty halls—a feeling of being watched, tingling taps on the shoulders, spectral shapes crouched in corners or gathered in front of fireplaces long gone cold. Tricks of the imagination in an old building or something else?
Join us in person as veteran tour guides like Robert Oakes lead you through the darkened halls of The Mount, sharing tales of the many eerie encounters that have been reported here for years, exploring some of the most haunted corners of the estate.
Robert Oakes has led ghost tours at The Mount for ten years and is the author of Ghosts of the Berkshires (The History Press, 2020).
By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
Puppeteer Carl Sprague will return to Ventfort Hall with the comic story of how his family’s century-old Czech puppet theatre was created and how it came to America.
