It is spooky season at the Wellington County Museum & Archives and you are invited!
It’s at this time of the year where everyone loves hearing scary stories, but real history holds some of the scariest and unnerving stories. Join us as we take a trip through the real history of the House of Industry and Refuge and explore some of the more unsettling stories of inmates and staff that called this place home.
This tour takes place outside on museum grounds and at the Poor House Cemetery where over 200 inmates were laid to rest. Please be aware there are no accessibility routes for this tour.
