As always, the Mansion, and its staff, were a delight! It always seem appropriate to 'dress' when going to the house built in 1903. On Thursday, I wore a outfit reflecting the 1910-1915 era. I shared tales told from the time period of the house, its construction and their early years there. The stories being shared in street conversations and over coffee and a cigar. The 'Typewriter Girl", 'Rock-a-By Baby', and others. Then, I shared a real tale told by local people, and which they swear is true, of a certain 'haunted bridge' and a mysterious beast. Friday night, I reflected the era of the 1920's and 1930's. Each night staff and visitors were asked to share their own 'ghost stories' of the Mansion and they were a delight to hear!
Comments from the evening (so far) have included:
"Loved your stories!"
"Great presentation! I so enjoy these evenings."
"Your costumes just fit the house!"
