About this event

Are You Afraid of the Dark?

This October, join the Henry River Preservation Fund for an extremely limited event that delves deep into the darker side of the Historic Henry River Mill Village.  Join our guides as they take you on a night time tour of the 116 year old textile village. Step back in time with stories from it's history that are best shared in the cover of darkness.  Let your curiosity and imagination run wild as you're taken through the abandoned village with nothing more than your guide's lantern to light the way.  

We're always asked: What happens after the lights go out? Are the ghost stories true? Is the Village haunted?

Here is your chance to decide for yourself! 

Tickets and tour times are extremely limited (only 15 total tickets per tour time), so don't miss out!


Please check-in at the Henry River Preservation Fund gift shop upon arrival. Purchaser must present matching government issued identification at the time of tour check-in. All guests under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
