Event Details

Dead men (and women) tell no tales until Cheshire’s Historic Hillside Cemetery opens after dark just once a year!  Spirits Alive Historic Hillside Cemetery Lantern Tour will be held in Cheshire, Connecticut on Friday and Saturday, October 13th and 14th, 2017. Purchase tickets on-line via the Cheshire Historical Society website at http://cheshirehistory.org/wordpress/.

All new stories always! More than 800 tea lights will illuminate the path! Guests will be guided by lantern among the tombstones to hear firsthand accounts of the lives of the dearly departed conveyed by actors.  In 2017, Cheshire’s forgotten history is revealed as we unearth true stories of local history including that of sea captains, smugglers and privateers; whispers of witchcraft; the dark story of Lock 12; an epidemic more deadly than the Black Plague; the hobo and his mystery; the spinsters with a mission; and more.  Limited tickets available as tour groups are fixed in size. Tickets start at $10.13. The event is sponsored by the Cheshire Historical Society and is a fun way to learn about our local history. The stories are sometimes funny, sometimes sad, sometimes shocking, and always entertaining and educational.  Spirits Alive puts the spirit into Cheshire’s local history.
