Ghostly Opportunity Coming Soon!

Hyde Hall Offers a New Summer Edition of Its Ghost Tours – July and August

2019 Summer Ghost Tours at Hyde Hall

Are you looking for something a little supernatural this summer?  Hyde Hall will offer a new take on its fall classic. Though the evenings grow a little longer and warmer, the museum will provide a chilling experience.  

Visitors will hear tales of the frightful and mysterious happenings on a guided tour through the shadowy passages and corridors of the historic mansion. Hyde Hall is no stranger to ghostly manifestations, spectral footsteps, and distant voices which started occurring more than 150 years ago. Hyde Hall’s skilled tour staff will take visitors to the places where the curious events took place. Learn about what terrorized James Fenimore Cooper Jr. in the middle of the night, and see if you can spot what stalks the notorious back hall—are you brave enough to enter the house after dark?

Tours run on Wednesday nights starting in July through mid-August and are available on July 10, 17, 24, 31, and August 7, 14. To purchase tickets, or for other details, you can visit Hydehall.org. Don’t wait too long—spots on these tours are fleeting.

You can find tickets for the event through Hyde Hall’s museum shop or at https://squareup.com/store/Hyde_Hall

Severe summer storms impact operations

20160812_Maple Down_1091

Early last Saturday evening a strong cluster of thunderstorm cells passed through the area. At Hyde Hall we suffered power outages and damage from large branches of maple trees falling on the south lawn, the road leading to the visitor center at Tin Top and other areas of the grounds.  The mansion and Tin Top suffered no damage although power was not restored to Tin Top until Tuesday afternoon. We were not able to conduct tours on Sunday but operated tours from the Kent Administrative Center on Monday and Tuesday.

A wedding reception was in full swing at the time, the guests were able to shelter in the mansion during the worst of the storm. Generators were quickly brought on line and soon the party was in full swing. Memories of this wedding will be with the couple and guests for years to come.

Thanks go out to the Glimmerglass State Park crew and the power company for the cleanup.

We look forward to welcoming you to Hyde Hall.

John Bower, Marketing Manager
