Historic Halloween at the Old Jail @ Old Jail
Oct 27 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Chills, thrills, fun, games and a little bit of history are part of a family Halloween party at the Old Jail, 110 King Street in East Greenwich on Sunday, October 27th. Come tour the slightly spooky cells which are rarely open to the public, with our own lady jail keeper from a hundred years ago, Mrs Everlin Smith, who served for 50 years. Vintage Halloween postcards and masks will be on display. There will be old-fashioned games, crafts, fortune-telling and snacks for all who dare to venture inside the jail.
The party runs from 1 to 4 pm. Youngsters must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets, available at the door or online at www.eghps.org, are $10 per person or free with purchase of a family membership in the East Greenwich Historic Preservation Society, which includes two adults and up to three children. Halloween at the Old Jail is a  fund-raiser for the Society, a 501(c)(3) non profit, all volunteer organization. Monies raised go to maintaining the 200-year old building on the East Greenwich waterfront.
