Bring your smelling salts to the Rogers Mansion in Southampton as the Gilded Age structure becomes haunted during the month of October.
Leading up to Halloween, the Southampton History Museum will host a series of events, from Ghost Hunting with the crew of Long Island Paranormal Investigators on October 13, to a program on Paranormal Findings in the mansion itself.
Wednesdays through Saturdays, beginning October 3, explore the exhibits, but be on the lookout for ghosts and spirits of the previous occupants. Was that really just a creaking floorboard, or the ghost of Captain Albert Rogers himself?
On Saturday, October 6, the Southampton History Museum celebrates life during the 19th Century with a harvest fair featuring a variety of activities that harken back to a simpler, hands-on era when both adults and children alike pitched in to make an income for the family and to make a sustainable home life. Admission to the museum will be $5, free for kids and members, for a self-guided tour.
