Nightmare at Main St. Manor
#NATL2017 #NightmareAtMainStManor

The famed Main Manor is noted for its exquisite, extensive rare book and object collection - and its haunted history. It has been the site of many unexplainable events, and some even claim to have seen spirits walking the halls. Are they trying to reclaim their precious items that are now on display in the Manor's library?

The Manor and it's library only open their doors to the public once a year during the Festival of Remarkably Rare Oddities - featuring items such as an envelope licked by Hemingway and Stephen King's dryer lint.

But this year, the item people seem to be dying to get their hands on is a cursed book once owned by Harry Houdini: Secrets of Magic. Who will be next to fall victim to it's horror?

Guests at Main Manor will enjoy a cash bar, heavy hors d'oeuvres, live performances and an interactive murder mystery filled with an eclectic cast of quirky characters.

Get ready for a very peculiar evening.
