Haunted Hearthstone

About

Hearthstone’s most popular event is back and more chilling than ever in this new theatrical performance that brings you face-to-face with Victorian serial killers.

Vignettes in each room of the museum bring to life sequential killers - they weren’t called serial killers at the time - and their nefarious deeds. Based on the newspaper accounts of the day, the scenes tell about the villains, the victims, and the beginnings of our fascination with true crime.

A new cast of nefarious real-life murders are central to this year’s production along with new tellings of two famous killers, one with a connection to Hearthstone. As you tour the historic mansion, lead by Victorian police detectives, you will meet the killers and their victims, hearing their tales of maliciousness and woe.

Performances will be presented every Friday and Saturday night in October from 6:00 pm to 8:40 pm. Tours are scheduled every twenty minutes starting on the hour and are about 55 minutes long. Guests are encouraged to wear their best Victorian costumes, especially as Halloween approaches.

Because of the dark subject matter, this event is for ages 13 years and older. No one 12 or under will be admitted. Minors must be accompanied by an adult.

Please note:
- To fully participate in the tour, guests must be able to climb a set of stairs from the lower level to the first floor and a long set of stairs to the second floor.
- The parking lot fills up quickly with these tours but there is ample free parking one half block away from the museum on State Street.
- Because of high demand for this event and the potential for overcrowding, all tours tickets must be purchased on-line through this website.
- Tickets are for specific dates and entry times as listed on every e-ticket confirmation sent via email (please make sure that your email address is accurate when buying tickets).
- E-tickets MUST be used for their stated times and dates. Unfortunately, there can be no exceptions.
