Do you believe in ghosts? Do you like history? Jack o’ Lanterns? Musket firing? Then come visit us at Hartwell Tavern on Halloween Eve.

Walk down a path lined with dozens of jack-o-lanterns. Stroll through the open house and grounds. Talk with rangers and volunteers about ghostly folklore and how people in Colonial New England protected themselves from evil spirits and witches. Visit with our park curator and see real artifacts recovered from colonial houses within the park that reveal a frightening history. Experience night-time musket firing demonstrations at 5:30, 6:30, 7:30, and 8:30 p.m.

For trick-or-treaters of all ages, the Friends of Minute Man will be offering individually wrapped candy so you can be among the first to say that you went trick-or-treating at Hartwell Tavern! Costumes are encouraged but not required.

This free program will be both outdoors and indoors. Visitors who wish to walk through Hartwell Tavern must wear a mask. All visitors should bring a flashlight and use caution on dark paths. The Friends of Minute Man will be selling lanterns for $5 to benefit future park programs.
