Lantern Tours of 1797 Judge Gideon Frisbee House on October 25th

As the leaves continue to change color and the air starts to get cooler, you can't deny that it's starting to feel a little spooky out there. There is no better way to celebrate the coming of the Halloween season than with a trip to the Delaware County Historical Association on Route 10, just 2 miles outside of Delhi.

On October 25th from 5:00 to 6:30 PM, DCHA will be offering guided lantern tours of the historic 1797 Judge Gideon Frisbee House, where guests can learn about the more eerie elements of the house, including the "coffin door," the "break-neck" rear stairway, and the narrow room in which a "presence" is said to lurk. Tours will begin at 5:00pm, 5:30pm and 6:00pm. The Frisbee family cemetery will also be open for guests to explore.

The lantern tours will be led by DCHA intern Samantha Misa, who will be attired in costume and on hand to answer any questions guests may have about the house. A brief preview of what guests may expect to encounter can be seen at

Light refreshments will be served and admission is free and open to the public. For more information, please call DCHA at: (607)746-3849 or email: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
