Begin your ghost hunt with a tour of Ten Broeck Mansion, one of the most haunted public sites in Albany. Trained docents will guide you through its haunted halls, regaling you with tales of the supernatural. Who is the woman in white seen gazing sadly upon Ten Broeck Triangle? What does the Man with the billy goat beard want from Mansion visitors? The answers may lie within the walls of Ten Broeck. Those who are brave enough to complete the tour will be rewarded with a seasonal treat!
The Halloween fun doesn't end there! If you survive the Mansion, your tour guide will lead you to Olde English Pub & Pantry, McGeary's Irish Pub, and the Hollow Bar + Kitchen. Along the way, you can look forward to supernatural tales regarding Albany's history and our rich folklore.
Tours are Tuesday October 17th, Thursday October 19th, and Wednesday October 25th and leave from the Ten Broeck Mansion at 5:30, 6:15 and 7:00 rain or shine. Tours last approximately 2.5 hours, which includes the stops at the pubs. Drink specials will be available at each pub. Be sure to get your tickets early, because this event will sell out fast.
