In October the Museum at the Friends Home culls the most fascinating and true stories of area lore to delight visitors of all ages during tours of downtown Waynesville and the Quaker Hill area. Each one-hour stroll highlights fascinating, historically based legends from the area's unique past based on first and second hand accounts of experiences that defy explanation.  A self-guided tour of the Museum at the Friends Home is included after the tour. Tours start mid-month and occur on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.  The cost is $12 per adult or child 12 or older, free for children under 12. Reserve and purchase tours online or call the Museum at 513-897-1607 to book tours. Here are some reviews of our tours from Tripadvisor.com.

Also in October, special ghost-themed dinners are offered at the historic Hammel House Inn in downtown Waynesville that include our Main Street walking tour followed by a self-guided tour of the Museum at the Friends Home. Reservations are required.  The Hammel House dinners and tours are generally on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights in October.  Contact the Hammel House at 513.897.3779 or 888.892.2879 for details and reservations.

A local TV show in Cleveland has a segment called "One Tank Trips" which highlight places to visit within a drive of one tank of gas. Watch this interesting video on Waynesville, "the most haunted village in Ohio".  Featured are the Museum's ghost tours, the Museum and Hammel House

Please note...  Over the course of the one-hour stroll you will be walking a distance a little short of a mile.  While we make many stops along the way and benches are available at some stops, you should assess your physical ability to participate in these tours.
