Museum Plans Events to Coincide with “Legends & Haunts of Wayne County” Exhibit

The Wayne County Historical Society’s Museum of Wayne County History’s newest exhibit, “Legends and Haunts of Wayne County” is being shown in the Changing Exhibition Room. Many fun and haunting events are being planned to coincide with the exhibit.

September 10 at 7pm, Bonnie Hayes will host the History at Night. Hayes is the Director of Historic Palmyra and will be talking about the life of Medium and recluse, Sibyl Phelps of Palmyra and the various spirit findings in the Palmyra museums.

Then on Sept, 11, 13 & 16 the museum is reviving the play readings, “Spirits of Butternut Street”, written by former director of the museum, T.J. Spencer. The play reading will take place in the old jail of the museum with limited seating. Reservations are suggested. Show times are 7pm on Friday, September 11 & Wed., September 16 and Sunday, September 13 at 1:30. Cost is $7 for adults, $5 for Students & Seniors.

Haunted History Ghost Walks will start up again all Saturdays in September and October. The 90 minute walking tour begins at 7pm in Lyons. Meet in front of the Wayne County Court House on Church St rain or shine. Museum Executive Director, Larry Ann Evans and former Museum Director, Joe O’Toole are tour guides for this unique evening that includes psychic folklore, haunted architecture, ancient archeological mysteries and the ghostly heritage of Lyons. The HHGW costs $10 for adults and $5 for children (12 and under).

And the ever popular Haunted Jail is back on the 23 and 24 of October from 6pm - 9pm. Walk through the jail cells at the Butternut street Museum and try not to scream too loud! Do the mannequins move? Is there ghostly smoke in the air? Are the cells full of spirits? Come young, come old if you dare! Cost is $3 per person. On Saturday, October 24, Lyons is having it’s very first Harvest Festival in the park and there will be hay rides up to the Haunted Jail from Church Street.
