To celebrate the season, Bacon’s Castle in Surry will present two nights of Haunt Nights on Saturday, October 16 and Saturday, October 30.

The event will include a campfire, cider, ghost stories, tours, costumed interpreters, and a Q&A with paranormal investigators.

Guests can choose from three different options as part of Haunt Nights:

A Grounds only tour costs $15 per ticket and offers outdoor fun including exploration of the Bacon Castle gardens in addition to the campfire, cider, ghost stories, and interaction with the costumed interpreters and paranormal investigators. This option is ideal for families and small groups.

Those looking for more of a thrill this season may wish to consider the Castle tour, which will involve a paranormal investigator-led tour through a darkened Bacon’s Castle in addition to the outdoor activities at a cost of $30 per ticket.

The Plus tour is an exclusive tour featuring a more in-depth experience with paranormal investigators and will feature Robert “Brad” Bradley, research coordinator for the Center for Paranormal Research and Investigation (CPRI), and his crew. Guests will learn more about the equipment and methods behind CPRI’s science-based research during this tour, which costs $40 per ticket.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
