“Spirits of the Cadron” on October 13

Cadron Blockhouse, Faulkner County, Arkansas

Travel by lantern light to the annual “Spirits of the Cadron” to hear first-hand ghost tales told by guides portraying historical characters at the Historic Haunted Cadron Settlement Park, 6200 Hwy. 319, Conway, on Saturday, October 13 from 6-8:45 p.m.

Sponsored by the Faulkner County Historical Society and the Faulkner County Museum, these haunted tours through history will start at the Cadron Blockhouse. Tavern wenches will meet and greet visitors. At each station of the lantern-lighted tour, guides dressed in period costumes will share scary stories about the settlers who once lived in the state’s second-oldest Euro-American settlement.

Characters will be portrayed by various prominent Faulkner County leaders, historical reenactors, area students and others with a knowledge or interest in local history. The purpose of the event is to not only educate the community on its history but have a little fun at a local historic site.

At the tour’s end, visitors may “whet their whistles” in the Cadron Blockhouse Tavern with the Faulkner County Museum’s favorite spiced cider. Ginger snaps will be served to those famished after their haunted historical tour.

Admission is $2 per person or $5 a carload. Bring your families and friends to a fun night of haunts and history! Rain cancels
