The Warren County Historical Society will host the annual Haunted Halloween Open House and Horse-Drawn Trolley Tours on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 5 and 6, from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
Take a ghostly stroll through the haunted Struthers-Wetmore-Schimmelfeng House and hop aboard a horse-drawn trolley ride through historic Warren while listening to scary and bizarre stories of the city, county and surrounding areas' past.
Is the home of the Warren County Historical Society truly haunted by the spirit of the Alice Wetmore Jefferson who was killed by a DAV&P train? She once lived in this house and there are rumors that she's been spotted at the third floor window! Or could the vision be Alice's Aunt, Anna Struthers Wetmore, for whom this house was built? Decide for yourself as you wander through a ghoulishly gloomy parlor where you'll encounter members of the unfortunate Wetmore family, visit the elegantly set dining room to sample some unusual Victorian delicacies, tour the strangely stocked old-fashioned store on the second floor where the creepy proprietor will be happy to assist you, and interact with some tormented creatures in an eerie room that is forever their home. It's frightening fun for everyone!
Enjoy free hot apple cider and cookies generously provided by GoldenLiving Kinzua and Asera Care Hospice!
