Nightmare on Main Street: The Horror of Confinement.
October 21, 22, 23 Nightmare on Main Street: The Horror of Confinement. (A look at 19th century Asylums, Prisons, Hospitals and Sanitariums.) Our visitors will learn about some real life stories that led to the reform of these often dark and dismal places. Nellie Bly went undercover in an asylum and wrote about her “Ten Days in a Madhouse.” Suffragettes and other women were imprisoned to suppress their voices. Wealthy patrons were committed to resort like sanitariums to be cured of their addictions. Patients were subjected to cages, shock, cold water treatments and more. The dead were buried in nameless cemeteries. Visitors can expect actual history as well as Halloween fun. Tours start from 7 p.m. through 9:30 p.m. $10.00 per person. Not intended for young children.
Museum will be CLOSED to daytime visitors on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Oct. 21, 22, and 23, because of the Nightmare on Main Street.
Please do not park in the lot between Dugan and the Museum during Nightmare on Main Street.
