SRU's Old Stone House offers 'spooktacular' Halloween program

SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - Slippery Rock University's historic Old Stone House, one of Butler County's most recognized landmarks, will once again host an array of spooky stories and Halloween festivities from 6-9 p.m., Oct. 25-26.

The fun, family-focused tour of the restored 1822 inn complete with ghost stories is free and open to all ages. A donation of $3 per person, or $5 per family, is suggested.

The annual event offers interactive storytelling, historical re-enactments and a paranormal investigation, commonly known as "ghost-hunting."

The Oct. 26 program will include a costume contest. Participants can register on the front porch of the inn, with judging set for 7 p.m. Prizes will be awarded to first- and second-place costumes.

The Old Stone House, owned and administered by SRU, is located in northern Butler County at the intersections of routes 8, 528 and 173, three miles south of Slippery Rock.
