Pawtucket, RI: Slater Mill Museum offers a special ghost tour to honor Saint Valentine. The Museum is located at 67 Roosevelt Avenue, Downtown Pawtucket, RI.
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).
Participants will be conducted upstairs where a talk of approximately 10 minutes about the lesser known traditions of Valentine’s Day, and how the occasion might have been observed in New England two centuries ago, will be given by Slater Mill interpreters Carl and Keith Johnson who are also regarded as authorities on the paranormal.
An authentic paranormal investigation will be directed by Carl and Keith Johnson, seen on the television shows: Ghost Hunters, The Haunted and Paranormal State. The group will be led through Slater Mill, then out to the walkway overlooking Slater Dam where all will pause to observe an “offering” to the spirits of the Blackstone River–in the form of a sparkling beverage and carnations–will be poured and tossed over the railing and into the rushing water.
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, call (401)725-8638. Slater Mill is located at 67 Roosevelt Avenue, Pawtucket, RI next to Pawtucket City Hall and across from Pawtucket Visitor Center.
