Historic Huguenot Street has announced dates for its signature Halloween event, Haunted Huguenot Street. This year will feature new tours inspired by the legends and history of Huguenot Street. Interpretations and special night-time tours will run on Friday and Saturday for three weeks: October 14 – 15, 21 – 22, and 28 – 29.

This year’s tours bring guests into four historic houses while exploring the history of oppression, particularly in the case of oppressed women in the 17th through 19th centuries. Guests will bear witness to the legendary true story of a tormented mother and an unorthodox macabre wedding ceremony, while also learning about sexist witch trials, kidnapped wives, mourning brides, and the curse of infertility.

Haunted Huguenot Street PG13-rated tours will depart from the DuBois Fort Visitor Center (81 Huguenot Street) hourly beginning at 5 pm, with the final tour leaving at 9 pm. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged as tours sell out quickly.
