Coming in October
Spirits of the Barnes Museum
Tour the Museum and hear the stories of the lives and deaths of the Bradley Barnes family. See original obituaries, eulogies, diary entries and announcements. Look closely and you might find Alice's hair, cut before her death. Learn about how the family regarded death and what funeral practices were used in Southington during the time the family lived here.
You'll also learn about the Paranormal Investigation done earlier this year by the Eastern CT Paranormal Society
This month long event will culminate in a second investigation by the Eastern CT Paranormal Society being held on Halloween Night. The museum will be open on Halloween from 1-5 pm for tours and closed during the investigation that night. Stay tuned for information on viewing a live feed during the investigation.
