West Hartford Hauntings

History, story-telling, and spooky fun await you this October at West Hartford Hauntings, theatrical cemetery tours hosted by the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society. The lantern-lit tours traverse one of West Hartford’s oldest burial grounds, The Old North Cemetery (c. 1790), located at 80 North Main Street, West Hartford, CT.  During your tour, you will meet dearly departed residents of the town who have returned to enlighten you about the past.

Old cemeteries are some of the best places to encounter the past. Gravestones yield important examples of historical art and language and provide biographies of local residents. Each year, the Noah Webster House creates storylines for West Hartford Hauntings based on research conducted on the lives – and deaths – of past residents. Old North gravestones, newspaper articles, death notices, wills, all yield pieces of a story that is then brought to you in a perfect blend of history and outdoor theater.

West Hartford Hauntings tickets will become available in Fall of 2024. For any questions about attending or participating in West Hartford Hauntings, please email us at events@noahwebsterhouse.org.
