Description: As the sun sets, the spirits come out to play… Take a lantern-lit tour through the old Mill Hill graveyard. Hear chilling tales based on real events from Norwalk’s hidden past. Each tour is approximately one hour.  Space is limited; purchase tickets online at Celebrate your survival with refreshments in the 1826 one-room schoolhouse and more chills in the Historic Haunted Maze! Not recommended for children under 8 years old. Among the crooked gravestones of Mill Hill, ghostly entities are waiting to share their true stories of death, murder, insanity and destruction.  A knife-wielding suicide victim from South Norwalk and an insane pyromaniac from Silvermine are some of the ghosts you will encounter along the way.  At the end of the tour, encounter the spirits in the Historic Haunted Maze…if you dare! Created by local haunted house and special effects experts, George Holomakoff  and Greg Kling, bone-chilling surprises await!  Bring a flashlight and a friend!
