Cemetery Tours – October 21, 22, 28 and 29 at 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm. 

It’s that time of the year where everyone loves hearing scary stories, but real history holds some of the scariest and unnerving stories. Join us as we take a trip through the real history of the House of Industry and Refuge and explore some of the more unsettling stories of inmates and staff that called this place home.

This tour takes place outside on museum grounds and at the Poor House Cemetery where over 200 inmates were laid to rest. Please be aware there are no accessibility routes for this tour. This tour is designed for a 14+ audience.

Tours begin at 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm on the front steps of the Wellington County Museum. 

Tickets are $15 + HST. Tickets available for purchase online below!
