Searching for Peabody's Tomb
A haunting Halloween journey through Mayslake Hall
by Chrissie Howorth
Directed by Alison C. Vesely
Performed October 19, 2011 ~ Octoctober 31, 2011
Join the spirits of Mayslake Hall as they take you in search of Peabody's Tomb!
Join us on an interactive Halloween experience, specially created for the haunting holiday season. With show times every half hour, groups of 15-20 will follow the mansion's ghostly butler as he guides you through historic Mayslake Hall, in search of the spirit of F.S. Peabody, the coal millionaire who built the mansion in 1921. For decades residents of the western suburbs have tried to delve into the corners of the estate on dark evenings, in an effort to test the truth of the ghost rumors. Now they have a chance to experience the mansion for themselves at the perfect time of the year for apparitions to manifest themselves. Come enjoy this eerie homage to both Mr. Peabody and the Franciscan monks who lived here in the 20th Century.
