Courthouse by Candlelight

Courthouse by Candlelight (Photo Credit: Tom Wieland)Are you afraid of the dark? Join us for a unique experience as we walk the halls of the Historic Courthouse at night by candlelight. Explore the areas typically closed to the public, including the basement, sheriff’s residence and the old 1900’s county jail. Learn the history behind this historic site and listen to some fun, slightly spooky stories along the way. 

Will the sounds of footsteps be ours or the spirits of a past county sheriff? Are the creaks and groans from the ghosts of inmates long gone or the settling of a 150 year-old building? You’ll have to join us to find out.  

Please note: There will be dim lighting, low-hanging objects, stair-climbing, and uneven terrain. Due to the nature of the tour, it is not ADA accessible.
