The Old Stone House will host its “Spooky Stories” Halloween festivities this fall, with plenty of thrills and chills for visitors of all ages. This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, October 28th from 5:30-8:30.
Spooky Stories will offer interactive storytelling by Mary Morgan Smith , historical re-enactments, and a special show by the performers of the Miracle Elixir Sideshow!

The festive and family-focused event includes face painting, an apple cider press demonstration, candle dipping, folk music, and open hearth sugar cookies. Jennings Environmental Center will also return to the Stone House with a popular exhibit about bats.

Admission is $8/person; children 4 and under are free.


The performers of the Miracle Elixir Sideshow will bring their “good, old-fashioned, fun and freaky experience” to the Old Stone House this fall. Don’t miss it!


Mary Morgan Smith began telling stories professionally over 25 years ago as a library storyteller for Prince George’s County (MD) Memorial Library System. Many of her stories are drawn from books and traditional tales.
