I hope you can join me at these hauntingly entertaining evening events at the historic Hermitage in Ho-Ho-Kus.
During the tour, I will let us know if I sense anyone (or anything) in the old house and will attempt to communicate with those very spirits.
For many years there have been reports of ghostly inhabitants at the Hermitage, will the ghosts join us during YOUR tour?
Donated items will be sold at the sale and all proceeds will go towards the maintenance of the historic Hermitage.
Come discover how we communicated when letters were left at the local inn, when postcards were our "twitter feed" and the operator listened to all our calls on the party line.
