Explore Murfreesboro’s most mysterious mansion and experience some of the unusual mourning customs and creepy superstitions of the Victorian era at Oaklands Mansion. As the doors creak open to reveal the town’s spookiest historic home, guides in mourning attire will be stationed through-out the mansion to answer questions.
As you explore the dark corners and creepy cupboards, the shadows will be hauntingly dim. For your safety, please bring your own flashlight. This special evening opening of the mansion will take place on Thursday, October 27 and Friday, October 28, 2016, from 7:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. with admission of $5.00 per person.
“While in the downtown area, enjoying the fall fun, take the opportunity to see Oaklands after dark! When your flashlight tour is over, if you dare, take a walk on the dimly lit trails of the wetlands and see the dark reflections of Maney Spring” said James Manning, Executive Director of Oaklands Mansion.
Tickets are $5.00 per person. Purchase your tickets in advance on our website or in the gift shop. Be prepared to show proof of payment at the front doors of the mansion to avoid ticket line in the gift shop. For your safety, Oaklands main drive will be closed. Please park at Oaklands Park Picnic Pavilion at 427 Roberts Street. You will then walk to the mansion to begin your tour!
