Special Programs

The Magical American Revolutionary Society

The Secret History

Magical American Revolutionary Society

A long-lost manuscript has been discovered in a musty attic. Its contents, as related in this little book, The Magical American Revolutionary Society, The Secret History, tell of C. Thaddeus Forrest, a mysterious figure who in 1775 invited the youth of Revolutionary Williamsburg to join a secret society. The story is filled with traitors and spies and maybe even magic and will delight fans of fantasy and historical fiction ... and anyone who loves to trick or treat.



Spooky Carriage Rides

By the flickering light of Jack O’ Lanterns, passengers hear the story of Jack and other haunting tales of the season as their carriage or ox cart travels along Duke of Gloucester Street. Look for our special carriage rides on the Blue Carriage, Carter Coach, Stage Wagon.

Face Your Fears

Open October 1-31, 2017

Face Your Fears

Many people have a fear of something. Even George Washington! (We can’t reveal it here, you will have to come and find out). During the month of October, visit the museums and, if you are not triskaidekaphobic, discover 13 common and not so common phobias represented by objects rarely exhibited. Throughout the museums you will encounter specially draped cases that dare you to lift the cover and face what lies inside. Will it be your fear?
