Residents of the apartments in Morningside Gardens in Norwalk are only a short walk away from this historic landmark and unique Halloween adventure.

Ghostly Sighting Tours will take place October 24-26 and October 29-31 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. with general admission tickets priced at $20 per person. Adventurous attendees will experience a tour of the first floor of the mansion, learning more about its deep history, including the time period between 1868 and 1938 when it was a private residence. Visitors may even encounter a ghost who is known to haunt the home every Halloween!

Built and originally owned by financier and railroad baron LeGrand Lockwood, the 62-room mansion has unparalleled architecture from the Victorian Era and is highlighted by exceptional Gilded Age interiors and furniture, a must-see for Norwalk residents! While the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion no longer serves as a home, it is a hot spot for local events, fundraisers, festivals and attractions. It has also been featured in several television specials, including A&E’s American Castles, the 1970’s series House of Dark Shadows and in recent years, served as the backdrop in the major motion picture The Stepford Wives.
