The Kellogg House Ghost Tour
Click above to check available dates for tickets

In 1898, Hiram Clay Kellogg built one of the first Neo-classical Victorian homes in Orange County. After his first wife died, he built a mansion as a gift for his second wife, Helen. His obsession with tall ships led him to design a three-story spiral staircase arranged around a central mast with a bottomless crow’s nest. In 1921, Hiram died in the home, but Helen lived another 42 years before she died in the very same home. Presently, certain unexplained phenomena indicate that the ghosts of the Kellogg family may be actively haunting the uniquely designed mansion.

$32 per person. Those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
