Just in time for Halloween, the Rogers Mansion in Southampton is holding a Ghost Hunting workshop at the Whaling Captain’s House on Saturday, October 26 at 4 p.m.
From 1648 until 1889, the Rogers family lived in the mansion with their heirs and used the land for farming. A decade later Samuel Parrish summered at the estate until he died in a car crash in 1932. The seventeen room mansion was also the home of whaling Captain Albert Rogers.
Ghost Detectives Colleen and Oliver Peterson will host a discussion about their experiences as well as share evidence and give a hands-on demonstration of the tools of the “trade.” Following the talk, the duo will bring guests along on a real ghost hunt.
Tickets are $18 per person and limited to 20 adults. Participants should bring outdoor clothing.
The Rogers Mansion is located at 17 Meeting House Lane in Southampton. For more information call 631-283-2494 or visit www.southamptonhistoricalmuseum.org.
