SOUTHAMPTON, NY — Halloween is a go at the Southampton History Museum this fall, with social distancing protocols strictly enforced.
Guests can visit a haunted Southampton Village inhabited with ghosts, goblins and ghouls on the grounds of the iconic Rogers Mansion.
The Haunted Village event is slated to take place at the museum, located at 17 Meeting House Lane in Southampton, on two Saturdays, October 24 and 31, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The event is free for children 10 and under and and costs $10 per adults.
New protocols include required reservations, with timed entrances for a 20 minute tour. Limited to 100 people at one time, only family groups of up to six are allowed per reservation. Children must be accompanied by an adult with a reservation. Face masks will be required and social distancing will be strictly enforced.
The museum’s outbuildings will be open and “occupied with the unimaginable,” organizers said. “Explore the Creepy Carpenter’s Shop, meet Debbie Depressed in the old Hildreth’s Department Store, encounter a Bloody Blacksmith and many more shocking surprises.”
Families will be able to enjoy a “safe, controlled Halloween with all New York State COVID regulations enforced, including no food, drink or onsite restrooms,” a release said.
RSVPs are required with timed entrances limited to 100 people on the one-acre lot.
“Everyone, especially adults, should dress up in their most terrible costumes and enjoy a frightening tour of our historic buildings,” said Tom Edmonds, executive director of the Southampton History Museum.
