Event description

Description

Don't be afraid of the dark, be afraid of what's in it.


Tour the main mansion, servants' quarters, and basements. Learn the history of Clifton Avenue and possibly meet the ghost of one of the Carpenter family's chambermaids, Gertrude. The tour this year will start at our sister property "Oaklands on 9th," the city's first apartment building. The Oaklands is currently undergoing massive preservation work after a nine-hour fire and three years with no roof left the building in unimaginable disrepair. What a place to peek around while we wait for our chauffeur to take us up the hill to Historic 300 Clifton!


300 Clifton is an authentic Historic Home which hearkens to a time when horse-drawn carriages clip-clopped through downtown, and Clifton was lined with similarly appointed residences that reflected the grace and style of wealthy urban families in the late 19th century. Once at the grand mansion, the tour explores the main mansion, grounds, and carriage house, all in the most uncomfortable way possible: in the dark! Only on the Candlelight Tour do you get all of the incredible history of 300 Clifton and the ghost stories too! On the tour, you get to pass through secret passages into the creepy parts of the house and hear the stories of the ghosts of 300 Clifton, and maybe even experience contact with the other side! You will tour the formal areas of the house and then travel to the basement and subbasement where the paranormal investigators found the haunted souls to be the most active!


Our tours run once weekly.
The event will start at 215 S. 9th Street (not 300 Clifton Avenue). Guests will complete registration and enjoy a meet and greet with other attendees and tour guides. A shuttle will take the group from the Oaklands on 9th to 300 Clifton Avenue. After the tour, shuttle services will take attendees back to the Oaklands on 9th at approximately 10 pm.

PARKING: Parking is available in surrounding lots and ramps, no parking on the property.


TOURS START PROMPTLY, PLEASE ARRIVE 15 MINUTES EARLY.
