Glen Farm Ghost Walk: Voices of the Past

The Van Bunschooten/Cooper Family was a very influential family in the Clove section of Wantage Township for nearly 150 years. Their homestead, the Glen Farm is now the DAR Van Bunschooten Museum. For one special night in October you will have the chance to “meet” members of the Van Bunschooten/Cooper Family. Not only will you hear the stories of the interesting lives they led, but you will also take a “journey” through 150 years of Wantage history. After your tour guests are welcome to enjoy a cup of warm apple cider by the bonfire. Homemade baked items will be available for purchasing.

The first tour will begin at 6pm, then at 6:30, 7:00 and 7:30.

The ghost walk is $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. 100% of all proceeds go towards the historic preservation of the museum. Advanced tickets are available and strongly recommended and can be purchased by emailing chinkchewunska1903@gmail.com
