Learn about spooky side of LeRay Mansion during Haunted History Tour on Oct. 25


FORT DRUM, N.Y. (Oct. 3, 2019) – Fort Drum officials are offering community members a "spellbinding" opportunity to explore the spookier side of the LeRay Historical District from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25.

Visitors will take a self-guided tour of the LeRay Mansion and grounds, stopping at stations to learn about the area's haunted history. As an added treat, the 10th Mountain Division Band will perform a "bewitching" concert.

Costumes are encouraged, and while this event is open to everyone, parents are advised that this tour may not be appropriate for all ages.

All non-DoD ID card holders who wish to participate can obtain a day pass at the Fort Drum Welcome Center, located to the right of the Lt. Gen. Paul Cerjan Gate on U.S. Route 11. Visitors will need to provide a valid photo ID and voluntarily submit to a National Crime Information Center-III (NCIC-III) background check. Directions to the mansion will be available at the Welcome Center.
