As Halloween floats closer each day, it brings with it a barrage of questions: Do you need a costume change for every party, what’s the magic number of candy bars for trick-or-treaters, what events are family-friendly, and most important of all: What’s actually scary? To answer all of the above and more, the Trustees of Reservations has orchestrated haunted happenings at several of their Massachusetts properties this month, from a 400 pumpkin jack-o-lantern display at a National Historic Landmark in the Berkshires to a hair-raising tour through a late poet’s old homestead. And though beautiful, these very old homes are the perfect places to revel in the year’s most haunted holiday.
With options from the northeast to the southwest, these historical sites are a unique way to embrace the Halloween spirit while also enjoying a new corner of the state.
