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’ll also share some of the mysterious and creepy stories told by paranormal investigators from around the world, who have sought, and in some cases captured compelling evidence proving (to some) Prospect Place to be one of Ohio’s most haunted historic sites.
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.
All proceeds benefit the restoration and preservation of Historic Prospect Place Estate.
