Ghost Tales & Spirits Night at Winterthur
Have a perfectly spooky time in the dark at Winterthur with actor David Keltz portraying Edgar Allan Poe in a one-man show as well as creepy crafts! It will be an unforgettable evening with America’s earliest master of the macabre—Edgar Allan Poe! Actor David Keltz recites two chilling Poe stories, “The Cask of Amontillado” and “The Tell-Tale Heart,” followed by the well-known poems “The Raven” and “El Dorado.” Mr. Keltz’s performance has been lauded by The Poe House and Museum in Baltimore, The Poe Museum in Richmond, and the Poe National Historic Site in Philadelphia.
You can also take a chilling tram ride through the grounds after nightfall, complete with scary stories at the Butler House, the Golf Cottage, and Chandler Farm that will give you goosebumps! Capacity is limited and a seat on the tram tour must be reserved. TRAM TOURS ARE SOLD OUT!
