FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- The Fairfield Museum and History Center will host its annual Legends and Hauntings Walking Tours.

The event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 28, and Saturday, Oct. 29.

Museum docents will be on hand to share haunting legends, superstitions and local folklore as night descends on the town.

“Hear stories from urban legends to folk traditions that have been passed down over the years,” said Fairfield native Walt Matis, the museum’s program and volunteer coordinator. “The idea is to have a good time – and to help you think about the things that go bump in the night!”

Those who attend the tours can learn the answers to many lingering questions. Did witches actually live in Fairfield? Are there ghosts in the Sun Tavern? Did body snatching happen in the cemetery?

Brave souls may even choose to stand on the site where townsfolk tested alleged witches in the 17th century.

Attendees are invited to wear their Halloween costumes on the tours.

The Cost is $10 for museum members, and $13 for non-members.

Advance registration is required.

For more information, call 203-259-1598 or click here.

The museum is located at 370 Beach Road.
