Saturday, October 6, 2012 from 11:30 AM to 4:30 PM (EDT)
Ghost Tour, Saturday October 6th, 11:30-4:30 every hour on the half hour
This year for Searsport's Annual Fling Into Fall Celebration (October 5th and 6th), the Penobscot Marine Museum will offer a Historical Ghost Tour of Searsport on Saturday October 6th. Ghost hunters will board a bus in front of Fowler True Ross House on the grounds of the Museum. A Museum Interpreter will tell the story of the Museum's own ghost, then a Belfast Masker will guide the bus and tell the tales of six spirits who haunt the sea captains' houses.
Tours start at 11:30 and run every hour on the half-hour until 4:30. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children and include Museum admission for the day. Call 548-0334 for reservations.
Generously sponsored by Belfast Area Chamber of Commerce and Waldo Community Action Partners.
When & Where
Penobscot Marine Museum
Penobscot Marine Museum has the feel of a 19th Maine village. Our lovely campus of ten buildings is in the charming town of Searsport on Penobscot Bay. Our ship captain’s house is beautifully furnished with antiques from around the world. Another ship captain’s house displays our extensive collection of 19th century marine paintings, scrimshaw, ship models, and China Trade objects. We have three 19th century barns displaying over fifty classic small water craft including lobster boats, dories, and canoes. Two buildings are filled with hands-on maritime activities for kids. Outside on our green you can raise and lower a ship’s mast!
Check our website www.penobscotmarinemuseum.org for exhibit, lectures and workshops through the year. The PMM campus is open from late May through late October, but our Gallery has special exhibits, lectures and workshops throughout the winter and spring, and our Museum Store and Framer remain open Thursday through Saturday.
