Barker Blackout Tours Saturday, October 19, 8 and 10 pm
Friday, October 25, 8 and 10 pm
Saturday, October 26, 8 and 10 pm

We still have spots available on our 2019 Blackout Tours! Gain a spooky new perspective on the Barker Mansion as you explore the building in near-total darkness while mansion employees share their experiences of hauntings at this 160-year-old building.

There are two tours each night at 8 and 10 pm. The 8 pm tours are for families, and 10 pm tours are for adults only (ages 16 and up). Note that this will not be a haunted house tour with zombies and goblins, and we will not be using paranormal equipment to search for ghosts or spirits. This will be, however, a great evening to look at our City’s history with a spooky twist.

Admission is $15 per adult and $10 per senior or youth. Registration is required via Eventbrite or by calling the mansion at (219) 873-1520 x5.
