Spooky doings at historical society

A spooky evening is planned for children ages 8 to 12, on Saturday, Oct. 10, from 7 to 8:30 at the Wilton Historical Society on Danbury Road.
During a candlelight walk through the dimly lit period rooms, and up and down groaning stairs of the 1740 Betts House and the 1772 Fitch House, youngsters will hear stories of the families who lived there. They will wend their way to the Burt Barn, where deep in the darkest chamber they will hear classic scary Halloween stories and folklore told in the dark by actress Mara Fleming. The evening will conclude with games, cider and donuts.
This is a drop-off program. Admission: $15 per member child, maximum $25 per family; $25 per non-member child, maximum $35 per family. Registration is required. Email info@wiltonhistorical.org or call 203-762-7257.
