October 17, 2018, Wednesday - 300 Clifton Candlelight Tour 2018

Time: 7pm (see event link below for additional times/dates)

Location: 300 Clifton Avenue

300 Clifton Candlelight Tour 2018

Don't be afraid of the dark, be afraid of what's in it.

Tour the main mansion, servants' quarters, and basements. Learn the history of Clifton Avenue and possibly meet the ghost of one of the Carpenter family's chambermaids, Gertrude.

This years tour will be accompanied by the mansions owners and a psychic medium Suzanne Krupp ( They will guide you on a tour through the main mansion, grounds, and carriage house, all in the most comfortable way possible: in the dark, of course. Every tour at 300 Clifton includes loads of history on the house and neighborhood, but only in the Candlelight Tour do you get to tour the creepy parts of the house and hear the stories of the ghosts of 300 Clifton, and maybe even experience contact with the other side!

You will tour the formal areas of the house and then travel to the basement and subbasement where the paranormal investigators found the haunted souls to be the most active! 300 Clifton is an authentic Historic Home which harkens to a time when horse-drawn carriages clip-clopped through downtown, and Clifton was lined with similarly appointed residences that reflected the grace and style of wealthy urban families in the late 19th century.
