Summer Soiree

Heritage Days celebrates the beginning of autumn with living history presentations, skilled artisans, farm animals, live music, and much, much more.  The event is held from 9 am until 1 pm on September 25 and September 26, 2014.  Admission to all activities, including the museum and limited house tour, are offered to students and the general public at $5 per person.  Reservations are recommended for groups of 10 or more.  Heritage Days is a weather-dependent event.

 
Ghost Tours - Oct. 17, 18, 24, & 25
Debbie Shaw
Ghost Tours offers an answer to the commonly asked question: Is the Sam Davis Home haunted? This storytelling event gives visitors a chance to hear a different tour of the historic house and property. Visitors first board a haunted hayride and hear tales of the property as well as the custom of mourning facts before being dropped off at the front walk of the historic Sam Davis Home. Storytellers inside the house and outbuildings will share the hauntingly true tales experienced by visitors, staff, and volunteers as guests are guided along the walking tour. The event begins at 7 p.m. with ghost tours departing every fifteen minutes until 10 p.m. Admission is $5 per child age 12 and under and $10 per adult.
