WILTON, Conn. -- The Wilton Historical Society is hosting a Halloween-themed walking tour for kids ages 8-12 on Saturday, Oct. 15, from 6:30-8 p.m.
Co-sponsored by the Kiwanis Club, "Things That Go Bump in the Night... Ghost Night," will feature a candlelight walk through the dimly lit period rooms and groaning stairs of the Betts House, which was built in 1740, and the Fitch House, built in 1772.
Participants in the tour will hear the stories of the families who lived at the properties and wend their way to the Burt Barn, where deep in the darkest chamber they will hear classic scary Halloween stories told in the dark.
The evening will conclude with games, cider and doughnuts.
Halloween costumes are optional. Parents may drop their kids off for the tour but are invited to stay and enjoy a glass of hard cider while waiting.
Registration for the event is required. Cost is $15 per child for members, with a maximum fee of $25 per family.
Cost for nonmembers is $25 per child, with a maximum fee of $35 per family.
