October 8 & 9, 8 pm
$10 advance tickets are recommended and can be purchased online at CornstalkHeights.com or in several Harriman retail shops [a complete list].

The tour will begin and end at the Temperance Building with the last tour being inside the Temperance Building, which is widely known for its haunts.
Bradbury's Bluegrass Band Appreciation Day
