Society Saturday: Historic Huguenot Street at Halloween

Huguenot Street is historic and, for three upcoming weekends, haunted! The Haunted Huguenot Street program runs the 16th and 17th, the 23rd and 24th, as well as Halloween weekend itself, 30th and 31st October.

A guilt boy reveals his nightmares at the Jean Hasbrouck House. This session is based on events that Abraham Hasbrouck himself recorded in his 18th century diary. At the historic burial ground guests will be treated to an interpretation adapted from Edgar Lee Masters’ Spoon River Anthology during which the dead will speak for themselves. 
 

Inspired by, according to the HHS, decades of reported paranormal experiences, a house maid is haunted by the ghost of the tragically demised Gertrude Deyo at the Deyo House mansion.  

These are the three highlights of the weekends. However, the entire street will be decorated in Halloween and fall decorum. 

The tours sell out quickly. They will leave the DuBois Fort Visitor Center hourly beginning at 5 p.m. The last tour will leave at 9 p.m. Hours on Halloween itself begin at 7 p.m. and the last one leaves at 10 p.m. There is a discount to pre-register.
