'Tavern Talks' will focus on Colonial hauntings, lore on Thursday, Oct. 13.

Anyone interesting in tapping into the spirits of the season will want to attend the Chadds Ford Historical Society’s "Tavern Talks" on Thursday, Oct. 13. It will be held at the society’s Barns-Brinton House tavern – a 300-year-old potentially haunted tavern.

A sampling of activities for the evening include performances by Colonial magician “Levram the Great,” fortune-telling, ghost stories, and other ghoulish surprises that will be unearthed at the event. Additionally, special guests from The Prana House, a wellness center in West Chester, will discuss female healers and witches.

"Tavern Talks," billed as a monthly experience – not a lecture – is aimed exclusively for adults 21 and older and focuses on unexplored aspects of early American history and culture. The program, which includes hands-on activities, food and drink tastings, demonstrations, and more, takes place at the 1714 tavern, which is located at 630 Baltimore Pike.

Admission is $15 for non-members and $10 for members. Since space is limited, tickets must be purchased in advance, either over the phone, in person, or online. For more information on the CFHS or to purchase tickets, call 610-388-7376, email info@chaddsfordhistory.org, or visit www.chaddsfordhistory.org.

The final "Tavern Talks" offering for 2016 will be held on Nov. 10 when the presenters will bite into “All Things Apple.”
