"There is something for everyone blending history and Halloween, from pumpkin crafts to a pirate treasure hunt, and house tours that include ghost stories and haunted hayrides."

Along with ghostly tours, guests can take a haunted hayride, warm up with warm cider and toasted marshmallows, join in on a search for riches, nosh on seasonal bites and more.

Mysteries of the Manor will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. The historic house tours are recommended for ages 8 and up, and reservations are required. Admission is $5, but free for Sylvester Manor members and children under 4-years-old.
