It is said things look different in the dark, and that is true of the Sam Bell Maxey House, especially around Halloween.

The Maxey House will be open late (9 p.m.-1 a.m.) on October 31 for candlelight tours on Saturday night. During the tours, visitors will learn about Victorian death, funeral, and mourning traditions. Tours will be given every 15 minutes starting at 9 p.m.

Admission is $5 per person. Reservations of tour slots in advance are preferred if you want a tour at a specific time. Those who do not reserve a tour time will be given tickets to the next available tour time upon arrival.

Hope you aren’t scared of the dark!
