October marks the beginning of ghost season at the Lawrence County Historical Society
New Castle is home to the third largest historic district in Pennsylvania. Many of the houses are over one hundred years old, and more than a few harbor tales of death, murder and hauntings.
Apparitions, strange occurrences, and bumps in the night are just some of the ghostly happenings going on in city’s historic district. Ghost hunters have detected activity, people have related eyewitness accounts, and mediums have spoken with the dearly departed.
Because of last year’s successful event, our second annual Haunted History Walking Tours will be held four weekends in 2014, beginning Friday October 3rd and ending Saturday October 25th.
Tours begin at 7pm and are considered strenuous.
Group size is limited to twenty and reservations are required.
- Restricted to ages 10 and older
- Prepaid Reservations only – Each tour is limited to 20 persons
- Tours will be held rain or moonshine
- This tour is considered strenuous – we will be walking up the North Hill
