Celebrate Spooky Season with “Ghosts of Thoroughgood Past” at Thoroughgood House

Wednesday, October 06, 2021

The Virginia Beach History Museums invite you to take a paranormal tour of the historic Thoroughgood House by candlelight this October.

Keep an eye out for ghostly happenings in the gardens and house as costumed professional storytellers guide you through the night. Campfires and cider will also be available at the Thoroughgood House to warm your spirits during these hauntingly fun fall nights. Tours are appropriate for all ages.

Tours will run every 30 minutes from 6-9 p.m. on Oct. 14 and 21, and Halloween weekend (Oct. 28-31). Tickets are $15 each and can be purchased online in advance or at the door. Click here to purchase tickets for "Ghosts of Thoroughgood Past" tours.
