Historic Halloween at the Old Jail  (Special Event)
1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Old Kent County Jail, 110 King Street, East Greenwich
Chills, thrills, fun, games and a little bit of history are part of a family Halloween party at the Old Jail, 110 King Street in East Greenwich on Sunday, October 27th. Come tour the slightly spooky cells, rarely open to the public, with our own lady jail keeper from a hundred years ago, Mrs. Everlin (Place) Smith, who served for almost 50 years, until her death in 1925 at age 80. Vintage Halloween postcards and masks will be on display. There will be old-fashioned games, crafts, fortune-telling and snacks for all who dare to venture inside the jail. 
The party runs from 1 to 4 pm. Youngsters must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets, available at the door or online at our Store Page, are $10.00 per person or free with purchase of a family membership in the East Greenwich Historic Preservation Society, which includes two adults and up to three children. Halloween at the Old Jail is a fund-raiser for the Society, an all volunteer organization. Monies raised go to maintaining the historic building on the East Greenwich waterfront.
