On Wednesday, October 28, prepare for the fright of your life as you join The Fern of Westfield, Kelties restaurant, and Historic Indiana Ghost Walks and Tours for an evening of devilish delights.
Your creepy encounter will begin with an elaborate dinner catered by Kelties (check out their website here) at the beautifully restored Fern of Westfield. This Indiana institution, located just North of Indianapolis, is the perfect place for a festive holiday soiree. You’ll travel back in time as you wander through the intimate, quaint building that was originally the home of a 1901 boarding house. Plan to arrive by 5:45 p.m., and dinner will be served at 6:00 p.m.
Next, let the experts from Historic Indiana Ghost Walks and Tours whisk you away on a spellbinding excursion through the romantic district of downtown Westfield. The history of this elegant Hoosier town will be highlighted, and you’ll learn of its tumultuous past as part of the Underground Railroad. Your tour guide will also explain the fascinating story behind the Orphan train and the history of the Quakers in Westfield, and you’ll hear real-life ghost stories and haunted tails from residents of the town that will have your spine tingling.
The evening of eerie adventure doesn’t end with the ghost walk. The Westfield Washington Historical Society adds a dash of nastalgia to the night by inviting participants to tour the Historical Society Museum, which used to be home to the Westfield fire station. Visitors have never been allowed into the building at night, so you’re in for a very special treat.
