Ticonderoga, NY – The Ticonderoga Historical Society will celebrate the Halloween season with a free program entitled “Haunted Hancock” on Friday, October 21 at 7 p.m. at the Hancock House located at 6 Moses Circle in Ticonderoga.
“We will be taking a look at the dark and unexplained side of history,” said program presenter Diane O’Connor. “The supernatural is woven throughout history in a powerful way.”
The evening’s tales will include a look at otherworldly beings connected to actual events that have taken place across New York and New England. Reservations are not necessary, but attendees should dress warmly and bring their own lawn chairs, as the program will be held outdoors. Additional information is available by calling (518) 585-7868 or via e-mail tihistory@bridgepoint1com. Refreshments will be served.
As a regional institution dedicated to preserving and interpreting the history of the Adirondacks and Lake Champlain Region, the Ticonderoga Historical Society encompasses a four-story museum with substantial collections and research library, as well as an active educational program series available for community organizations.
