NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- The Thomas Paine Cottage Museum is offering a gentler spooky house inhabited by kindly Colonial souls on Saturday from 4-6 p.m.
Children will be guided to not-too haunted rooms, get treats from Mr. Paine himself and enjoy some spider-cider and creepy-cupcakes with "scream" cheese frosting.
The event will also include pumpkin decorating for participants to bring home.
The Thomas Paine Cottage Museum and Sophia Brewster One-room Schoolhouse are owned and administrated by the Huguenot and New Rochelle Historical Association with a mission to preserve the history of the City of New Rochelle and founding father Thomas Paine.
Admission is $3, plus $5 for a pumpkin to decorate.
