Voices from the Shadows

October 25, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - October 26, 2019 @ 8:30 pm

Costumed guides portraying “agents of death” will lead participants by candlelight on a spine-chilling tour through the historic park and Breakthrough Battlefield. At each stop, guests will encounter an escaped prisoner on the run, a guard on picket duty being ambushed, a surgeon performing grisly work in a field hospital and more.

These and other ghouls will recount their stories and share some of the more macabre and spirit-filled folklore from the past.  Tours will be accompanied by sights and sounds that heighten the senses while breaking the silence of the night.

Based on true figures folklore and stories of the Civil War era, the naturally haunting atmosphere of Pamplin Historical Park gives visitors a rare opportunity to experience the Park and battlefield after dark. “Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality.” – Edgar Allen Poe
