Ghost Tours at The Mount- Sold Out

October 15, 2021

8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

It starts with the sounds—creaking floors and slamming doors, fading footsteps down empty halls—a feeling of being watched, tingling taps on the shoulders, spectral shapes crouched in corners or gathered in front of fireplaces long gone cold. Tricks of the imagination in an old building … or something else?

Join us in person as veteran tour guide Robert Oakes leads you through the darkened halls of The Mount, sharing tales of the many eerie encounters that have been reported here for years. Oakes leads you, live, through some of the most haunted corners of the estate.

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).
