The Museum will also present Frankenstein - The Man and the Myth on Thursday, October 25 at 5:30 p.m. The lecture, taking place at the Rogers Memorial Library (91 Coopers Farm Road, Southampton), will celebrate the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley's novel and explore Frankenstein's evolution. The Museum's final seasonal programming is Paranormal Findings at the Rogers Mansion and Beyond on Saturday, October 27 at 2 p.m. The Long Island Paranormal Investigators team will unveil the conclusion of their investigation of the Rogers Mansion, as well as other bone chilling findings from throughout the years.

Hallockville Museum Farm (6038 Sound Avenue, Riverhead, hallockville.com) will present Devil in NY Goody Garlick, an autumn afternoon lecture, on Sunday, October 21 from 1 to 3 p.m. More than three decades after the most infamous American witch-hunt began in 1692 in Salem, Massachusetts, Tara Rider, Director of the International Academic Program to Ireland & Lecturer, Stony Brook University, will discuss Long Island's very own witchcraft trial.

Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum's (200 Main Street, Sag Harbor, www.sagharborwhalingmuseum.org) annual Ghost Walking Tour of the Village will take place on Friday, October 26 from 6 to 8 p.m. The evening's host, Annette Hinkle, will rivet tourgoers with mysterious true tales of local spots during this two hour exploration.

The classic, which stars Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick and more, will start at 8 p.m. and don't forget to come in your Rocky Horror best as there will be a prize for the most creative costume.
