Talk: "Specters Galore from Forest to Shore" In-Person
SPECIAL EVENT FOR THE 125TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE LIBRARY!
Specters Galore from Forest to ShoreThere always seems to be a lot of talk around town, every year about this time, concerning hauntings and witches. The same old familiar names and places always seem to be bandied about: Phelps Mansion, Boothe Park, Goody Bassett. Stratford's "spookiness", however, transcends all of these. Stratford is so much more than one ghost, one witch, one perilous journey into darkness. Join us on October 30th as we discuss some of the venues in Stratford that may well raise the hair on the back your neck, put a nervous smile on your lips, and leave you watching over your shoulder attempting to determine if what you just saw out of the corner of your eye was a shadow, or something much more ominous!
