2017 Spirits Alive!


Join us for our fourth year, this October 13th and 14th!

WE’RE NOW SOLD OUT! Thanks and we look forward to seeing everyone!

Dead men (or women!) tell no tales until Cheshire’s Historic Hillside Cemetery opens after dark just once a year.

Seven hundred tea lights illuminate the path and guests are guided by lantern among the tombstones to hear firsthand accounts of the lives of the dearly departed by people portraying real people from Cheshire’s past.  The stories are sometimes funny, sometimes sad, sometimes shocking, and always entertaining and educational.

In 2017, Cheshire’s forgotten history is revealed as we unearth true stories of local history including that of sea captains, smugglers and privateers; whispers of witchcraft; the dark story of Lock 12; an epidemic more deadly than the Black Plague; the hobo and his mystery; the spinsters with a mission; and more.

Spirits Alive puts the spirit into Cheshire’s local history!

Stay tuned to this page or our Facebook page for more information in the coming weeks!
