Tricks and Treats this October
The Telluride Historical Museum brings you Haunted History

Telluride, Colorado (October 24, 2014) With leaves turning and temperatures dropping, the season of ghouls and goblins is upon us, and the Telluride Historical Museum has some tricks and treats up its sleeve again this year.

On Thursdays October 23 and 30, don’t miss the Lamplight Tours of Lone Tree Cemetery. The tours provide an atmospheric evening filled with the inspiring and often tragic stories of the men, women and children who populated Victorian era Telluride. Flashlights are recommended, as are warm layers. Tours meet at the Cemetery on the east end of town at 6:30pm, and tickets are $15, or $10 for Museum Members.

On Halloween night, gather your friends and your courage for this year’s Haunted Hospital. Friday, October 31 from 8-10pm, the Museum will be transformed into a bone-chilling maze of haunted characters from Telluride’s past.

Built in 1896, the Telluride Historical Museum originally served as the town hospital, providing health care to the region for nearly 70 years. Hundreds of sick or injured men, women and children were cared for there, and many souls breathed their last within its walls. See for yourself if the whispers of hauntings and paranormal activity are true this Halloween, the spookiest night of the year. Admission is $10 or $5 with a student ID.
So grab your friends and take in Haunted History with the Telluride Historical Museum this month. See you there! Visit our website at www.telluridemuseum.org for more information.
