Graveyard Shift Ghost Tours

Friday, February 27, and Saturday, February 28, 6:00, 7:00, 8:00 and 9:00 p.m.

We reprise our popular Graveyard Shift Ghost Tours for some winter fun. The Mark Twain House has been featured on Syfy Channel's Ghost Hunters and the Biography Channel's My Ghost Story.

On these tours participants will hear all these creepy tales -- and learn about Mark Twain's own interest in the supernatural.

Filled with haunted history, dark tales and Victorian traditions surrounding seances and spiritualism, these nighttime tours are as educational as they are goosebump-inducing.

They sell out fast, so be sure to call 860-280-3130 soon to make your reservations!

The tours are tsponsored by Tsunami Tsolutions.

Call: (860) 280-3130 for more information & ticketing.
