Event description

Description


Dead men (and women!) tell no tales...except for two nights every October when Spirits Alive illuminates Cheshire’s Historic Hillside Cemetery with 1500 candles and opens the gates after dark to the ticket-holding public.

A lantern-carrying guide will lead you through the tombstones to meet Cheshire's dearly departed who will recount their long-forgotten life stories and the long-ago events of the nation, state, and town that shaped those stories. The stories are sometimes shocking, sometimes sad, and always entertaining and educational.

For the sixth year in a row, Spirits Alive has unearthed eight all new and all true stories of local history. This year Cheshire's forgotten history will be revealed through past residents caught in the crosshairs - of revolution - of the Great War - of the witch panic - of an opioid epidemic - of a failed marriage - and more.

Spirits Alive puts the spirit into Cheshire’s local history. Please follow our Facebook page at Spirits Alive Cemetery Tour and our Instagram page @cheshirespirits to see behind the scenes photos and information in the coming weeks. To learn more about the Cheshire Historical Society's events, programs, and low cost annual membership, please visit the Cheshire Historical Society website at www.cheshirehistory.org.

All proceeds go to support the Cheshire Historical Society exhibits and programs. Tickets are nonrefundable, but transferable. In the event of rain, a rain date will be determined and posted to the Chehsire Historical Society website and Facebook page, as well as the Spirits Alive Facebook page.
