Halloween Revelers Regaled with Chilling Chicago Tales

Bridgehouse Museum Associate Julia Morrison tells an eerie Chicago tale.

This week, nearly 100 Halloween revelers gathered at the 2nd Annual Eerie Evening to benefit our McCormick Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum.

The cob-webbed halls of the 103-year-old landmark bridgehouse were transformed into haunted stories from the turn of the last century when the five-story bridgehouse was built. Clad in costumes, museum associates regaled guests with true and bone-chilling Chicago tales as they were guided through each floor of the museum. Before and after the creepy tours, guests enjoyed drinks donated by Two Brothers Brewery on the Riverwalk plaza.

The Bridgehouse Museum is open Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., through October 28. General admission is always free for Friends of the Chicago River members, and only $8 for non-members. Adults over 62 years, students, and children ages 6-12 may pay a discounted rate of $6. Children under five are free. Guided Tours of the Bridgehouse Museum are available Friday and Saturday at 11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. for $15.
