All Hallows Eve – Oct 18 & 19

All Hallows Eve is coming! Mystery paired with history on October 18th and 19th from 6 to 9 pm at the Thiebaud Farmstead! Experience old-fashioned Halloween fun with scarecrows and jack-o-lanterns, ghosties and games, crafts and tasty treats, engaging storytellers and characters.

A “Museum of Oddities” & “Cabinet of Curiosities” will have you wondering. The phrenologist will welcome visitors to have their head examined before proceeding with measurements and offering insights into their character, all in good fun. A body-snatcher aka resurrectionist may cause a bit of a fright as their historically based trade is revealed.

The Switzerland County Wolfshager Witches will be dancing around the cauldron and there will be storytelling by the campfire sure to mesmerize listeners.  Add a few more interesting characters for an evening of fun with just the right amount of fright.

Some of our crafty and creative historical society members are making Halloween and fall wreaths that will be offered for sale and by silent auction.

All Hallows Eve is a fundraiser for the care and maintenance of the Thiebaud Farmstead. Admission is $3 per person or $10 for a group of five. Come enjoy this 200+ year old National Historic Register site with the 160 year old house, still entertaining guests after all these years.
