Haunted History Lantern Tours to Benefit The Delaware Company on Oct. 13

NARROWSBURG - Cushetunk resident Joseph Skinner, head of the historic Delaware Company, is believed to be the first European murdered in the Upper Delaware River Valley, and that 18th century crime has never been solved. In fact, there was enough blood spilled in the Valley in the years leading up to and during the Revolutionary War that there are bound to be a few spirits roaming about even to this day.
The unanswered question of “Who killed Joseph Skinner?” plus other colonial-era ghost stories will be the focal point of an evening of family-oriented fun at the Fort Delaware Museum of Colonial History in Narrowsburg on Saturday, October 13 from 5:30 to 9:30 PM.
The Haunted History Lantern Tour will feature guided tours of the Fort by lantern light, with various period-attired interpreters relating ghost stories with a local flavor. There will also be musical entertainment provided by special guests The Tara Ministrels, playing traditional Irish music.
Admission is $10 per person, $20 per family, and there will be cider and donuts available for purchase with all proceeds going to benefit the Delaware Company, a non-profit group dedicated to supporting and promoting the history and historic landmarks of the Upper Delaware.

Chili and corn bread will also be available for purchase, supporting the Town of Tusten Youth Commission.
Those attending are advised to bring their own flashlights, although some will be on sale in the Burbank Pavillion.
