Featured Event

Graveyard Shift Ghost Tours


Reports of ghostly apparitions, mysterious bangs, cigar smoke and other unexplained phenomena, featured on Syfy's Ghost Hunters, have led Mark Twain House to reprise these popular tours. Hear these creepy tales - and learn about Mark Twain's own interest in the supernatural. Spiritualism and ghostly tales were a big part of the Gilded Age, an age of uncertainty, rampant materialism and credulity much like ours.

Capital Classics: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Play,Staged Reading

Back by popular demand for Halloween week, the Capital Classics Theatre Company presents radio-theatre style performances at The Mark Twain House. This year, it’s an original adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s gothic novella “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.” Just as in the days of the golden age of radio, Company members use live sound effects, music and their storytelling vocal skills to tell the tale of Dr. Jekyll, who faces horrible consequences when he lets his dark side run wild with a potion that transforms him into the animalistic Mr. Hyde.
