Family Ghost Tours at The Mount

October 22, 2021

5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

What was that sound? A creak of a door being opened or just the wind? Was that a voice even though no one is there? Did that shadow just move? 

Join educator Robert Oakes and our experienced ghost tour guides as they share tales of ghostly encounters at The Mount. The tour will start at the top of the property at the Stable continue through the grounds into the empty rooms of the Main House.  This tour is especially tailored for children ages 7-12 and lasts approximately 60 minutes.

Children must be accompanied by an adult. Cost per child is $12. Parent or guardian may attend for free. Limit of one adult per family.

Robert Oakes has led ghost tours at The Mount for 10 years, and is the author of Ghosts of the Berkshires (The History Press, 2020).
