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 the beat of a heart.
Written & directed by PJ Griffith for Old Sturbridge Village.

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!
