OCTOBER 20-21 & 27-28, 2017 @ dusk to 10:00PM
Abilene Preservation League has a Fall Fundraiser at our historic Swenson House called HAUNTED ABILENE. We will be open for 2 weekends in 2017, Friday October 20, 2017 & Saturday October 21, 2017 and then Friday October 27, 2017 & Saturday October 28, 2017. Every year since 2008 a enthusiastic crowd has enjoyed our friendly Halloween event. Because of Abilene citizens generosity we have given as many as 700 tickets to Abilene youth group such as The Alliance of Women and Children. Hopefully, getting these young people involved in Abilene history will spark their interest and make them aware of the importance of saving our beautiful and valuable Big Country culture. The following happenings are part of Haunted Abilene: a 25 minute Trolley ride around Old Abilene, the historic home decorated in scary Halloween items, a ghostly grave yard, a corn maze, food trucks and a FABULOUS Children’s Area. Tickets can be purchased on line at HauntedAbilene.com or call 325-676-3775.
