Halloween Event 2017

This year’s Halloween event at the museum was a great success. We saw over 300 visitors and made over $500. The site was packed with little kiddies in the most adorable and frightening costumes. The wieners and marshmallows were roasting while trolls and witch’s blood (coffee and hot coco) were keeping cold hands warm. The historic houses were covered in cob webs and scary decorations. Kids had a great time at the activity table. The scary maze survived the wind and scared many who were brave enough to go through it. There were also other activities all around the site that kept the little ones busy.

Here are the results of the Costume and Jack-O'-Lantern contest:


First – Quinn’s Unicorn
