Knox’s Headquarters is set to host a 45-minute scary theatrical presentation on Saturday, October 20th, from 7 to 10:45 pm.
In the spirit of 18th century gothic novels, costumed interpreters from the New Windsor Cantonment and Knox’s Headquarters State Historic Sites will perform a haunting tale. The grounds of the historic Knox’s Headquarters, the 1754 Ellison home, will serve as a stage for this presentation about ghosts and strange happenings. Performances every 45 minutes and this play is recommended for visitors 12 years and older.
Over the years many staff members at Knox’s Headquarters have claimed to have seen spectral visages. Whether it was a passing glimpse out of the corner of their eye or just an uncomfortable lump in their stomach, they could not help, but feel, at times, that someone was watching them. Practical thinkers dismissed these claims as the products of vivid imaginations or illogical fear. Considering that some individuals can sense things that the population at large cannot, is it possible that a few did see something. In a larger sense, have some historic events or the people who took part in them left behind a residue.
Knox’s Headquarters is located at 289 Forge Hill Road, in Vails Gate. Admission is free. Reservations are required. For more information or to make reservations, call (845) 561-1765 ext. 22.
