Fright at the Fort

October 22

3 PM-7 PM @ Apple River Fort State Historic Site (Elizabeth, IL)

Visit the Apple River Fort for an evening of eerie fun! How would you keep a witch out of your house? Cure a case of cholera? Learn about 1830s mourning and funeral customs and why it matters which way the deceased is carried out to the cemetery. Listen to spooky stories around the fire. Meet the ghost of John Gray, and hear the story of his life (and death) on the Illinois frontier. Free. Visit AppleRiverFort.org.
