Mulberry Hill Spooktacular ghost tour

Published 9:43 am Wednesday, October 3, 2018

The Historic Staunton River Foundation and the Staunton River Battlefield State Park’s keynote fall event will return Saturday, Oct. 20 with a new twist – a 60-minute ghost walk tour of Mulberry Hill mansion. The event is intended for the entire family, but parental guidance is strongly encouraged and begins at 7 p.m. Children under six are free. Parking will be available in downtown Randolph near the Roanoke Station Visitor Center at 6000 Roanoke Station Road. From there, a shuttle bus will transport you to Mulberry Hill Plantation and you will enjoy a 60-minute walking tour of the house and grounds.

We are thankful to our volunteers and donors who make this event possible. Many hours of hard-work, devotion, and preparation have gone into this event.

The Mulberry Hill Spooktacular, a 60-minute ghost walk, intended for the entire family, will begin sharply at 7 p.m. and tours will commence approximately every 20-25 minutes from the parking lot area near the Roanoke Station Visitor Center in downtown Randolph. Tickets for the Mulberry Hill Spooktacular are available on a first come, first serve basis. We advise that you arrive early to purchase your tickets or phone the Park office at (434) 454.4312 to reserve and pay for your spaces before the event. In keeping with a Civil War themed storyline, this year’s ghost walk is packed with more unique, chilling, spookier, and somewhat comical scenes.

Wear weather appropriate clothing, comfortable shoes, and we encourage you to bring a flashlight for this event. Experienced guides, tiki-torches, and a couple of spooks and specters encountered along the way will direct you on the path.

The admission rates charged for this event go to the continued promotion, development, and preservation of Southside Virginia’s premier Civil War Battlefield and beautiful State Park. The Historic Staunton River Foundation is a nonprofit organization. There is no rain date for this event. The day of the event is cash only. If you have a group of 10 or more phone (434) 454.4312 or email info@ for more information.
