Candlelit Tour of Howe House

Candlelit Tour of Howe House

Stories lurk in the shadows of Howe House, but if you can wait until nightfall then the truth can emerge from the darkness. Revealed will be local tales of death by fire, flood, knife and pestilence, or opportunities seized and hopes dashed, of multiple marriages, true love, and past lives kept secret until now.
