Spooky times aboard the Trolley of Terror

trolley-poster-2016Back by popular demand, the Monteith Society is once again hosting two fun and spooky historical experiences this October: a candlelit tour of the Monteith House Museum followed by a ride on the Trolley of Terror; and a VIP ghost-hunting experience at the Monteith House. Both are sponsored by the Monteith Historical Society.

The Monteith House is the oldest building in Albany, and was built in 1849.  Through the years, various ghost stories have been shared about this building, but very few people have had a chance to hear the stories from the inside of its walls, and even fewer have had a chance to seek out the spirits that dwell within.  Please, join us for a ride on the Trolley of Terror and our candlelit tour to hear the ghost stories of downtown Albany and those of the Monteith House that have chilled its inhabitants to the bone.

The Trolley of Terror will take place on October 21, 22, 28 and 29.  Tours begin at 6pm, 7pm, 8pm and 9pm. Sign up today for the Trolley of Terror candlelit tour and ghost stories of the Monteith House. The cost of the Trolley of Terror and candlelit ghost tour is $10 per adult and $5 per child. Reservations are highly recommended as space is limited.

Our VIP ghost hunt experience will take place on Saturday, October 22 and Saturday, October 29, from 10pm-1am. Each VIP experience is limited to 10 people. VIPs will be joined by experienced paranormal investigators and learn how to use various pieces of ghost hunting equipment.  VIPs will then get to help conduct a paranormal investigation of the Monteith House.  The VIP experience will begin at 10pm and run until 1am.  The VIP experience is $40 per person. Reservations are required.
