The short stories and poems of Edgar Allan Poe come alive this fall outside the buildings of Old Sturbridge Village. When COVID-19 restrictions necessitated a change in Halloween plans, staff members conjured up a new program.  

The result is Phantoms and Fire, which brings a new twist to the Halloween season with a series of haunting outdoor performances and seasonal activities. The stories are told by the characters at six different locations throughout the Village and conjure up tales of horror, revenge, obsession, and deception. Happy Halloween!
