For the month of October the Rogers Mansion will be taken over by the spooky spirits of Halloween. Explore our exhibits and learn about Southampton’s past, but be on the lookout for ghouls and ghosts of previous occupants. Was that a creaky old floorboard or the footsteps of Captain Albert Rogers getting ready to leave on a whaling trip? You will have to stop in to find out!
The history of the Rogers Mansion starts in 1648 when it was a one room farm house built by the pioneering William Rogers family. Hundreds of Rodger family descendants were born, raised and died on this property. Their spirits are encouraged to participate in this month-long transformation from historic house museum into a haunted house for people of all ages.
Director Tom Edmonds says "Visitors will experience the unknown, see the unbelievable and hear the impossible. Everyone in the family will have a great time and never forget what they think they saw."
