I thought I would take today’s post to give a quick shout-out to an event I am taking part in this Saturday, Oct. 27: Haunted Historic Four Corners in Herkimer, NY, hosted by the Herkimer County Historical Society.
Regular readers may remember that Herkimer’s Historic Four Corners is one of my favorite places to walk or run by. They may not know that each of the four corners is reputed to have at least one ghost. On Saturday, participants can walk a tour of two of them: Suiter House and the 1834 Jail. The New York Shadow Chasers will be on hand to share their findings when they have investigated the sites. A few ghosts may be on hand as well. That is where I come in.
At least, there may be a few actual ghosts on hand; I can’t speak to that. However, there will also be actors there impersonating some of the more famous ghosts. I will reprise my role of Roxalana Druse (I was in the play Roxy by Jack Sherman in 2015; perhaps you read a few of my blog posts about it). Jean Gianini and Chester Gilette are two other murderers that may be there, as well as one or two that haven’t had plays written about them (ooh, a future writing project for me?).
The event runs from 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27. Pre-sale tickets are $10.00 and available at the Herkimer County Historical Society, 406 N. Main St., Herkimer, NY, Monday-Friday, 10-4. They will be $15.00 the evening of the event. Tickets will be sold by time slot – tours will leave every 15 minutes. Proceeds will benefit the Historical Society and the “Friends of Historic Herkimer County” who are renovating the 1834 Jail. For more information, contact the Historical Society at 315-866-6413.
