During the Halloween season, Morven Park— the old Southern mansion and former home to two governors– treats visitors to strange happenings and ghostly tales. This weekend (Saturday, October 18 and Sunday October 19, 2008), an evening walk will bring forth some of the unusual events that have been experienced on the property. Guides dressed in 19th Century and early 20th Century styles will lead a tour around the mansion: through the Boxwood Gardens (where lie the graves of Governor and Mrs.
Davis), the Civil War hut sites, and the Coach House. “We are often asked questions like: Does Governor Davis haunt his former home?” says Tracy Gillespsie, Director of Historical Operations. “We will also let you know if Civil War soldiers are still living in their 1862 encampment and what causes the strange noises and bizarre activities that happen on this historic property. All of the tales are truly unique, original and completely true.” It will be a very entertaining and eerie evening for all who attend. Tours begin
at 7:00 pm and will be held entirely outdoors, rain or shine. Reservations are required and the cost is
$10.00 for Adults and $5.00 for children under 12. Please call 703-777-6034 to make reservations.
