A Ghostly Valentine's at Slater Mill. Are you looking for something out of the ordinary to help celebrate Valentine's Day weekend this year? Visit Slater Mill, Pawtucket's historic treasure and birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution, for a ghost hunt through three splendidly preserved buildings on the grounds: Slater Mill (1793), Wilkinson Mill (1810) and Sylvanus Brown House (1758).
This event will commence with a brief (approximately 10 minutes) talk about the lesser known traditions of Valentine's Day, and how the occasion might have been observed in New England two centuries ago.
The group will be led out to the walkway overlooking Slater's Dam, constructed in 1792, where all will pause to observe an "offering" to the spirits of the Blackstone River. Then an authentic paranormal investigation will be directed by Carl and Keith Johnson, Slater Mill Interpreter staff members. The johnsons have appeared on the television shows Ghost Hunters, The Haunted and Paranormal State.
Come and bring your sweetie for a walk through the site where the TAPS team investigated, and brace yourself for the unexpected! The tour will last 90 minutes. Admission is $20.00 per person. For reservations and further information, please call (401)725-8638, ext 101 or 108.
