Looking for a scary experience this Halloween? Then check out Hyde Hall in Cooperstown.

The beautiful Hyde Hall Mansion is said to be haunted by the one-time lady of the house. George Clark built the house, but when he died, his children pushed their mother, Anne Clark, out of the house. Legend says she put a curse on the mansion saying no woman would ever be happy there.

Hyde Hall was featured on the Syfy cable channel network’s popular investigative series, Ghost Hunters, on October 30, 2013, Halloween Eve.  According to Hyde Hall Executive Director Jonathan Maney, “the Ghost Hunters producers saved this episode for their Halloween special—the best slot in their season. It’s that good!” Each year exclusive candle-lit tours take place during October.

Hyde Hall offers a candlelight tour that visits all places in the Mansion where ghostly manifestations have been reported for over 150 years, including those identified by Ghosthunters.

Tours are $20 per person, reservations are required at 607-547-5098 for the following dates: October 4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25,  26 and begin at 6:00, 6:30, 7:00 & 7:30 pm.
