Join this guided tour created by Master Storyteller Jonathan Kruk, and discover the historic lore and spirits that linger here at The Tarrytown Music Hall.
The Tarrytown Music Hall was built in 1885 during the Millionaire’s Colony Era when mansions dotted the Hudson Valley landscape and families such as the Rockefellers, Goulds and Vanderbilts gathered at the Music Hall to participate in its lavish balls, flower shows and concerts. Since then, the Music Hall has been a reflection of the human spirit, mirroring the current events of the town and the rest of the world. In addition to Presidents’ speeches, it has hosted women’s suffrage rallies and endured several wars, depressions and pandemics including those of 1918 and 2019. It is a vessel through which many people pass. And some don’t leave . . .
The building is an official site of the Haunted History Trail of New York. Gotham Paranormal Research Society has investigated the Music Hall several times and has consistently detected paranormal activity including intriguing EVP (electronic voice phenomena) audio files and EMF (electromagnetic field) readings.
Times vary by date. Tours will be led by either Jonathan Kruk or Chant Macleod.
