Coventry, CT – Hold tight to your flash light and brace your soul as you enter the evening realm of Haunted Hale for its 13th year! On Friday and Saturday, September 28th and 29th, and again on October 5th and 6th, spirits will roam the fields of the Nathan Hale Homestead as you try to escape from the Headless Horseman!
For ages 8 and up, test your bravery with this moderately scary walk through the annual Corn Maze brimming with frightful “Sleepy Hollow” themed fun. Look out for Van Tassles’ Ghost – she lost her head to the Headless Horseman and might seek revenge of her own! Appropriate footwear and reliable flashlights strongly recommended.
For a less frightening experience, join an ensemble of eccentric characters at the barns for family fun. Let your inner spook shine through with Face Painting by Lyss, have your Tarot cards read by Psychic Medium Mary Beth Bruce (Saturdays only), and enjoy festive activities in the Hale Barns. Fall’s favorite concessions can be purchased on the patio.
Haunted Hale runs from 7 to 9 pm; last tour leaves at 9 pm. Admission is $10 per person or $30 per family (2 adults and 2 children) for Corn Maze only; the family price for CTL Members is $25. Additional fees apply for Face Painting, Tarot card reading, and concessions. In case of inclement weather, our rain date of October 7th will be inundated with ghouls.
This hair rising, spine tingling event will either be a night to remember– or a nightmare you’ll wish to forget!

About the Nathan Hale Homestead
Nathan Hale Homestead is the birthplace of Connecticut’s State Hero, Nathan Hale, who was hanged as a spy during the Revolutionary War. The house, built in 1776, belonged to Nathan’s parents and family, and is located on the only site he ever called home. Its furnishings include several Hale family possessions and other collections amassed by Connecticut lawyer and philanthropist George Dudley Seymour who purchased the Homestead in 1914 and began a program of restoration that is largely preserved today. The Hale Homestead is situated on 17 acres, adjoining the 1500-acre Nathan Hale State Forest, lending to the site’s substantial rural character.
