October 12 and 13 the ghost walk runs from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm with tours running every 15 minutes from the historical society in Vernon. Tickets must be purchased at the museum so reservations are not needed for the ghost walk. Adults $4, children $2.

This is Tom Rice visiting with the museum's special guests who will be with us for the ghost walk and mystery dinner. We've got a great weekend of folklore, ghost stories, fantastic food served in a very mysterious atmosphere and seasonal fun.


Mystery dinner tickets are $18 and reservations must be made by October 10. The October 12 dinner is slated for 7:00 pm and the October 13 dinner starts promptly at 6:00 pm. Tickets and reservations are available by calling the museum 812 346 8989. Seating is limited so get your tickets early. Janet Tempest and the Rice family have great food and entertainment planned again this year.

Local students do a terrific job of re enacting ghost stories around the square in Vernon.

All proceeds from the event are used to maintain the North American House, society headquarters and museum. Over 600 families attend the event every year. It's always a fun weekend and we appreciate our sponsors and volunteers who have brought this unique event to Jennings County for over 20 years. We look forward to another year of spooktacular fun!
