October Experiences

Spooky Season Is Here

A house as old as this one, becomes in time, a living thing. Surround yourself with darkness lit by grinning jack o’ lanterns, listen to messages from beyond, and harvest the moon’s energy. Let the darkness in – for one special month!

Join us around the fire for s’mores and scary stories. We’ll have everything you need for s’mores, but we ask guests to be prepared to share a chilling true story about a paranormal encounter with the group.


October 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th.

Tour the main mansion, servants’ quarters, and basements. Learn the history of Clifton Avenue and possibly meet the ghost of one of the Carpenter family’s chambermaids, Gertrude.

Tour through the main mansion, grounds, and carriage house, all in the most comfortable way possible: in the dark, of course. Every tour at 300 Clifton includes loads of history on the house and neighborhood, but only in the Candlelight Tour do you get to tour the darker parts of the house and hear the stories of the ghosts of 300 Clifton, and maybe even experience contact with the other side!

You will tour the formal areas of the house and then travel to the basement and subbasement where the paranormal investigators found the haunted souls to be the most active! 300 Clifton is an authentic Historic Home that harkens to a time when horse-drawn carriages clip-clopped through downtown, and Clifton was lined with similarly appointed residences that reflected the grace and style of wealthy urban families in the late 19th century.
