Witches’ Night

Join us on Halloween each year for a night of frights, treats, ghouls, animatronics, and witches haunting the Mansion’s grounds! Kids of all ages are welcome to visit and interact with members of the Friends of Story Mansion, all decked out in witch costumes. Festivities start in the late afternoon for the young ones, and continue well past dark for those who prefer to haunt at nighttime. Be there and be scared!!!
