Haunted History Ghost Walks and the Museum’s Haunted Jail!

The Museum of Wayne County History brings two fall mainstays back again this October. The best Haunted Jail for a creepfest fun time is the real haunted jail! The Museum of Wayne County History has the exclusive rights to the only really haunted jail in Wayne County open to the public and when the jail cells are decorated for the spine-chilling and spooky Haunted Jail, not even the ghosts can hold back their screams! Let the museum staff and volunteers scare the wits out of you October 22, & 23, just remember to bring someone along, to hold their hand!

Walk through the jail cells at the Butternut street Museum right over the spot where William Fee was hung in 1860! Do the mannequins move? Is there ghostly smoke in the air? Are the cells full of cobwebs and spirits? Come young, come old if you dare!

“Even though I work here and I know that the cobwebs aren’t real, there’s always that element of the real haunted jail underneath and that’s what’s really terrifying,” said Executive Director Larry Ann Evans.

There is parking on the street and in the back parking lot of the museum. Enter the museum through the back door, right off of the parking lot where a ghoul will meet you! Come to Lyons all day on October 23 to enjoy Pumpkinpalooza during the day and then the Haunted Jail at night.

The Haunted Jail runs Friday the 22 and Saturday the 23 from 6pm – 9pm. Cost is $3 per person.

Also, every Saturday evening in October Mason Winfield’s Haunted History Ghost Walks take off from in front of the Wayne County Courthouse at 7pm. Cost is $10 for adults and $5 for children for a 90 minute walking tour of Lyons. If you are fascinated by ghost stories, eerie happenings and the supernatural, the popular Haunted History Ghost Walks is what you are looking for. Former Museum Director, Joe O’Toole is the tour guide for this unique evening that includes psychic folklore, haunted architecture, ancient archeological mysteries and the ghostly heritage of Lyons. Participants are asked to sign a waiver to walk at your own risk during the tour.

For more information about any of these events, call the Museum of Wayne County History, 21 Butternut St., Lyons, NY at 315-946-4943 or check out the website, www.waynehistory.org.
