A Haunted History Lesson

Most spooked spaces only teach you the basics: guys emerging from shadows have scandalous motives, chainsaws are a buzz-kill, and cackling isn’t limited to folks with deviated septums. So take advantage of a different kind of haunted house during the historic Stranahan House’s educational ghost tours. Docents donning Victorian mourning garb lead you on a twisted, factual (at least partially) recreation of the property’s macabre lineage, giving you a chance to see this century-old museum in a new spookier light. But beware, the ghost of Frank Stranahan has unfinished business to settle before his soul finds solace in the soil. Tours run every Friday and Saturday in October at 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. Tickets cost $20. Reservations are required, call 954-524-4736.
Fridays, Saturdays. Starts: Oct. 5. Continues through Oct. 27, 2007
