Haunted Historic Tour in Herkimer Oct. 27


HERKIMER — The “Historic Four Corners” in Herkimer will open to the “Haunted Historic Tour” from 5-10 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27 at Herkimer County Historical Society’s 1884 Suiter Museum Building and the 1834 Herkimer County Jail.

Members of the paranormal investigation group “New York Shadow Chasers” will divulge their findings of ghostly evidence in each building. Attendees will meet some of the famous inmates at the jail, like Roxalana Druse and Jean Gianini. The tour includes the third floor of the Suiter museum where the society’s collection is housed, including Dr. Suiter’s autopsy table.

The building was originally owned by Dr. Suiter and used for his medical practice.
