Join us for spooky tales of Schenectady’s haunting past. We’ll explore the historic Stockade after dark, and discover the neighborhood’s most blood-curdling ghost stories. Guided by expert storytellers, immerse yourself in the spirit realm and prepare to confront the haunted past of this nearly 400-year-old neighborhood. On our “Ghostly Victorian tour”, elegant homes transform into haunted dwellings. Listen to ghostly tales as you venture past flickering stoops and encounter lingering spirits. Or, brave the “Colonial Hauntings” tour, traversing ancient streets where mist swirls around colonial-era houses. Uncover dark secrets and encounter restless spirits under the moonlit sky. Reserve your place now, and unlock the haunted history of the Stockade…

Tickets are $15 and you can choose either the “Colonial Hauntings” or “Ghostly Victorian” tour. The two tours feature different stories, and venture through different parts of the neighborhood. We recommend you bring a flashlight. Each tour lasts 60-90 minutes – both tours cannot be done on the same night.

Please park on the street. Parking is not allowed in the YWCA parking lot. Candlelight Tours are co-sponsored by the Schenectady Heritage Foundation. The tour meets at 32 Washington Avenue, Schenectady.
