Murder, apparitions, tragic deaths and the unexplained…Join us on the weekend before Halloween for a night-time tour of the historic Rahway Cemetery and listen as lantern-carrying guides tell haunting tales as they walk between the silent stones.

(Change) Five tours are given each night, Friday at 7:30, 8:00, 8:30, 9:00 and 9:30, and now, due to weather, Sunday at 6:30, 7:00, 7:30, 8:00, and 8:30pm.  Tours last approximately one hour and end with refreshments in the Museum kitchen.  Guests are also welcome to tour the Museum.  Tickets are $15.00. (Tours are designed for teen and adult audiences.)

This program, now in its 8th year, has become one of the Association’s most popular offerings.  The tours sell out, so make your reservations early by calling the Museum office at 732-381-0441.
