Updated 3 years ago

Spooky things are starting to happen at a local museum.The Bangor Museum and History Center is gearing up for the halloween weekend with an event Thursday night called a “reading death.”Guests will learn how to read old portraits that were taken after someone had died and interpret epitaphs from graveyards.The museum says you might even notice the ghost of the home’s former owner who died in the nineteenth century amidst claims that he had embezzled money.”He died in December without being able to clear his name, so we think he may haunt the house. We have some strange things going on here, noises we can’t account for.”Along with Thursday night’s event, the museum is hosting an embalming program on Saturday.For hours and ticket prices, visit Bangormuseum.com.
