Discover the spooky side of Linden Place’s history….if you dare For four weeks in October a special docent-led tour will be offered on select Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights which covers the ghost stories associated with the DeWolf and Colt families and the eerie amusements of the nineteenth century. The one-hour tour will invite guests to see the entire museum and will be followed by light refreshments.

As you tour the 200-year-old mansion’s rooms by candlelight, 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. And finally….find out if any of Linden’s ghosts will be following you home. 
This tour is recommended for people ages 14 and up.
Admission is $15 and $10 for Linden Place members. Reservations are required as space is limited. No refunds.
