This October, the Merchants and Drovers Tavern Museum will once again host The Spirits of Rahway: A Lantern Lit Tour of the Rahway Cemetery. Taking place on Friday, October 27, and Saturday, October 28, this nighttime tour will showcase the sinister side of Rahway’s history.
Guests will be escorted through the cemetery by their “Spirit Guide,” who will relay thirteen true stories of murder, tragic deaths, and the unexplained goings on within the cemetery gates.
The Rahway Cemetery dates to 1724, and many famous -and infamous- characters are buried within its gates. For decades, stories of ghostly encounters have been reported by caretakers, visitors, and museum staff.
Tours begin after sundown at 7:30, 8:00, 8:30, 9:00, and 9:30 p.m. Tours last approximately one hour. Reservations are required. Tickets are $20 per person.
After the walk, guests are invited back to the Merchants and Drovers Tavern Museum for hot mulled apple cider and refreshments. Attendees are also welcome to take a self-guided tour of the candlelit floors of the 227-year-old building. It is recommended that guests bring their own flashlights to help guide their steps throughout the tour.
