News @ Noon: Ghosts, Ghouls and More at the Historical Society
UNDATED - The Minnesota Historical Society is gearing-up for a month ghostly fun. They have special seasonal events at several of their locations.
Spokeswoman Rachel Abbott says a new event is a 19th century seance at the Alexander Ramsey House in St. Paul.
It's kind of a re-enactment of a Victorian parlor seance, which were very popular in the late 1800s. This is an 1872 mansion, and so it's going to be a really fun event.
The seance will be held on October 22nd, 23rd, and 24th.
Abbott says you can also take in a "Mystery at the Fur Post" in Pine City.
This is a very family-friendly kind of mystery program, where you get to kind of wander around the site with a lantern. You have a list of suspects and you investigate a bunch of clues and try to solve the mystery.
This event at the North West Company Fur Post is October 16th and 17th.
Abbott says they're also hosting a "Day of the Dead Family Day" at the History Center in St. Paul on October 25th, a "Mystery at the Fur Post" at the North West Company Fur Post in Pine City, and Victorian Ghost Stories at the James J. Jill house.
