The Fantastic Terrors of Edgar Allan Poe

“Believe nothing you hear, and only one half that you see.” –Edgar Allan Poe

The short stories and poems of Edgar Allan Poe come alive outside the buildings of Old Sturbridge Village, as told by the characters who have just witnessed them occur. At six different locations throughout the Village, tales of horror, revenge, obsession, and deception will be repeated in pulsating rhythm…like a beating heart.

Written & directed by PJ Griffith for Old Sturbridge Village & Coggeshall Farm


CLUES & CANDY: It’s our 2020-version of Trick-or-Treat where you must gather clues throughout the Village and present them on your way out for a bag of treats. Fun for kids of all ages! Please feel free to wear your costume!

HEADLESS HORSEMAN: While COVID 19 slayed Sleepy Hollow, the Headless Horseman still rides at Old Sturbridge Village. Look out, he’s bound to show up when you least expect it.

MYSTERIOUS MELODIES OF LAWRENCE TRAILER: You may have seen him at the Village before, but you’ve never seen – or heard – the haunting acoustical stylings of Lawrence Trailer like you will during Phantoms & Fire.

PROSPERO'S TAVERN: The Bullard Tavern, ghoulishly transformed into Prospero’s Tavern, will have food and beverage selections sure to delight. Enjoy plenty of safe outdoor dining and live music by Lawrence Trailer. Food and beverages are an additional fee.
