Historical society plans ghost walk, dinner
The Jennings County Historical Society is gearing up for Hector’s Haunted Happenings — Mysterious Dinner and Ghost Walk to be held Oct. 12-13 at the North American House Museum in Vernon.
The event includes a home-cooked meal. Courses are served in a mysterious manner, and the menu, as well as the dinner’s theme, are kept secret.
Dinners will be at 6 p.m. Oct. 12 and 5 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. Oct. 13.
Tickets are $15 per person for the dinner or $16 per person for dinner and Ghost Walk. Tickets must be purchased in advance for the dinners because seating is limited. Reservations and ticket purchases for the dinner must be confirmed by Oct. 9.
Reservations are not needed for the Ghost Walk, which features ghost stories and local folklore acted out by the Jennings County High School drama students. The stories told are based on local folklore and legends as well as haunted happenings throughout the Midwest.
Hector’s Haunts was named after a tale from the 1800s when a young boy fell into the town’s well. The hand-dug well is 30 feet deep with narrow walls. It still remains entombed in concrete beneath the historical society’s museum.
Tickets for the Ghost Walk may be purchased on the day of the event for $3 per adult and $2 per child younger than 10. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Tours leave the museum every 20 minutes with the first one beginning at 6:30 p.m. both evenings. The last Ghost Walk leaves the museum at 9:30 p.m.
Tickets are available now at the historical society’s museum in Vernon. For information and tickets, call Wanda at (812) 346-8989.
