The Ashland County Historical Society Presents the Family-Friendly Halloween House at the 5th Annual
The Ashland County Historical Society will debut the family-friendly Halloween House during the fifth annual Pumpkin Glow on Saturday, October 21, 2023, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Freer Home located at 1260 Center St.
This year, guests will be asked to park their cars in the designated parking area and enjoy the display on foot. The outside of the Freer Home will be decorated as always, featuring jack-o’-lanterns along the porches and a graveyard out front.
Behind the house, Grunt Grub will be serving up delicious food for purchase that guests can enjoy in the picnic area located next to the garage. The main attraction will be self-guided tours through the Halloween House accompanied by indoor trick-or-treating.
For the first time, both the first and second floors of the Freer Home will be decorated for Halloween in conjunction with the revamped History of Halloween tour. From jack-o’-lanterns, pumpkins, and black cats to ghosts, witches, and candy corn, each room will have its own theme to illustrate the history of Halloween.
Exhibits will also feature plenty of signage to provide guests with a fully educational experience. As visitors enjoy the home, they can expect free handouts from local businesses and historical society volunteers to complete the night.
Costumes are encouraged, but not required. Admission to the event will be $5 for adults, and $3 for children. Cash or credit will be accepted at the door. Tickets will not be pre-sold this year. Call the Ashland County Historical Society, 419-289-3111, with any questions about the event.
