Ghost Tour: Tale of the Matron

The Tale of the Matron is an outdoor historic walking tour that tells the story of true events that took place at Snug Harbor in 1863. You’ll be guided past our spookiest buildings and landmarks: the Matron’s House, the Butcher’s Cottage, the former Surgeon’s House (now known as the Governors House), and the grave of Snug Harbor’s founder Robert Richard Randall. Each space has its own unique connection with history, life, and the afterlife.
