From the Hayward Area Historical Society
October is the season for macabre tales, and nothing is spookier than when the stories are true.
Hayward Area Historical Society invites you to its three historic properties for some hist-eerie fun during their Shrouded Tales tours. Join “The Undertaker,” portrayed by actor Kyle Green, as he walks you through some of the area’s reportedly haunted sites, and recounts tragic tales of local families and brings to light the dark deeds of unsavory characters - all tinged by Victorian-era death traditions and superstitions, as well as accounts of paranormal activity.
Due to the popularity of last year’s Shrouded Tales program, the Historical Society tripled the number of tours for 2013. However, space is limited for each tour, so call to make reservations for one or more of the following tours:
October 4th, 5th and 6th at the San Lorenzo Pioneer Cemetery located at the corner of Hesperian Boulevard and College Street; October 11th, 12th and 13th at Meek Mansion located at 17365 Boston Road; and October 18th, 19th and 20th at the McConaghy House located at 18701 Hesperian Boulevard. Two tours are available each night at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.
Tickets are $10 and $5 for seniors, students, and Society members and must be purchased in advance. Space is limited. Call Heather at Hayward Area Historical Society at 510-581-2516 for reservations.
