Join us for Ghost Tours during the month of October 2022
Travel back in time with storytellers Jonathan Kruk & Chant Macleod.
The Music Hall was built in 1885 during the “Millionaire’s Colony” era when mansions dotted the Hudson Valley landscape and families such as the Rockefellers, Goulds and Vanderbilts gathered at the Music Hall to participate in its lavish balls, flower shows and concerts.
Since then, the Music Hall has been a reflection of the human spirit, mirroring the current events of the town and the rest of the world. In addition to Presidents’ speeches, it has hosted women’s suffrage rallies and endured several wars, depressions and pandemics including those of 1918 and 2019. It is a vessel trough which many people pass. And some don’t leave …
The building is an official site of the Haunted History Trail of New York. Gotham Paranormal Research Society has investigated the Music Hall several times and has consistently detected paranormal activity including intriguing EVP (electronic voice phenomena) audio files and EMF (electromagnetic field) readings.
