The Glebe House Museum and Gertrude Jekyll Garden in Woodbury, Connecticut represents one of the earliest historic house museums in the country. The museum allows visitors to get a glimpse of what life was like in the 18th century.
An annual Halloween tradition at the Glebe House Museum is the All Hollow’s Eve Cemetery Tours & Haunted Museum exhibit. This year’s event was entirely sold out!
While the museum property was not part of the event this year due to COVID-19 restrictions and building capacity, the Glebe House still offered a delightfully theatrical experience through its cemetery tour nearby.
Guests met notable ‘ghosts‘ during their cemetery stroll. These ‘ghosts’ from Woodbury’s history such as Sarah Brian Marshall, and the Reverend John Marshall. In real life, they had once met at King’s College, now Columbia University, in 1761.
During this ‘ghostly meet up‘, a headless apparition roamed the premises and a group of witches enjoyed a tea party.
