Historic Flashlight Tours : 

$20.00 per person (plus processing).  Ages 13+

7:00PM to 11:00PM

​Limited prepaid reservations only


​Join us as we turn the lights-out, switch the flashlights on… and step back into the 19th century.  Learn about the life and times of one of Muskingum County’s most influential founding-family’s. From the early years and new business prospects at Adams Mill through the years of Civil War and the family’s heroic efforts to support the belief that all men are created equal. Learn about the joys, the tragedies and sorrows that befell this patriotic family during a remarkable period of growth, change and strife. We will also be discussing the various legends that surround the estate (this will include the information we found during our research)

After the tour, you are welcome to explore the mansion and areas of the barn at your leisure and see for yourself if the legends and ghost stories are true. Bring a flashlight, camera, and perhaps a voice-recorder; there’s no telling what you’ll discover.

6:00pm - Gates open.  (Do not access the mansion grounds from the adjacent private driveway.)

6:30pm - Mansion open

7:00pm - Guided tour begins

Please be on time!  For the benefit and enjoyment of all participants, NO ONE WILL BE ADMITTED AFTER 7:30PM
