Murrell Home Ghost Stories
Oct 27, 2017 to Oct 28, 2017
19479 E Murrell Home Rd
Come and hear spooky tales told in Oklahoma's only surviving antebellum home, the George M. Murrell Home in Park Hill, this Halloween season. The Murrell Home Ghost Stories event will feature storytellers in period clothing telling stories of events in and around the Murrell Home as well as other bewitching tales. Enjoy cider and cookies in the smokehouse, and then embark on a two-hour tour of the 1845 plantation home.
Visitors to Murrell Home Ghost Stories will enjoy the recounting of mysterious events revolving around the Murrell Home and northeastern Oklahoma. Learn about the mysterious black dog that suddenly appeared along the local creek behind the home one night more than 150 years ago, the woman who appears in the home's attic window, or the little girl who appears on the stairs.
During the ghost story nights, visitors to this event will be ushered into the front hall decorated with candles, jack-o-lanterns, cobwebs and other ghostly decor. Participants will move from room to room, with storytellers recounting different legends in each location. Keep your eyes peeled and listen for spooky noises as local storytellers recount the oral traditions of the historic home.
Reservations are required. This event is not recommended for small children.
