Haunted Hale at the Nathan Hale Homestead


Hold tight to your flash light and brace your soul as you enter the evening realm of Haunted Hale. On Friday and Saturday, October 6th and 7th, and again on October 13th and 14th, spirits will amble the paths and roam the halls of the Nathan Hale Homestead.

An ensemble of eccentric and ghoulish characters from Dark Walk will attend the Homestead’s twilight festivities. Medium Steven Gibson will conduct a séance on the property in attempt to root out some of the restless spirits haunting the Nathan Hale Homestead.

Let your inner spook or ghoul shine through with Face Painting by Lyss, try your hand at a number of Halloween games and activities on the Hale Patio, and enjoy fall themed concessions.

Beyond the light of the barns, in the shadowy corn stalks, spooks wait in the dark for wandering souls. Test your bravery- and your flash light batteries- with this moderately scary walk through the annual Corn Maze brimming with the frightfully-fun theme Your Own Worst Nightmare.   

Haunted Hale runs from 7 to 9 pm; last tour leaves at 9 pm. Not recommended for children under 8. $20 per person for Haunted Hale; $8 per person/ $30 per family for Corn Maze only. In case of inclement weather, a rain date of October 15th will be inundated with ghouls.

This hair rising, spine tingling event will either be a night to remember– or a nightmare you may wish to forget!

About the Nathan Hale Homestead

Nathan Hale Homestead is the birthplace of Connecticut’s State Hero, Nathan Hale, who was hanged as a spy during the Revolutionary War. The house, built in 1776, belonged to Nathan’s parents and family, and is located on the only site he ever called home. Its furnishings include several Hale family possessions and other collections amassed by Connecticut lawyer and philanthropist George Dudley Seymour who purchased the Homestead in 1914 and began a program of restoration that is largely preserved today. The Hale Homestead is situated on 17 acres, adjoining the 1500-acre Nathan Hale State Forest, lending to the site’s substantial rural character.
