Saturday Talk – “Ghosts of the Berkshires”
Jan 9 @ 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Local Berkshire author and historian Robert Oakes will put the spotlight on “Ghosts of the Berkshires,” the subject of his new book, with special emphasis on the ghost lore of Ventfort Hall. He will make his presentation via Zoom on Saturday, January 9, at 3:30 pm.

In leading this spirited journey through history, Oakes will relay that before it became a haven for the arts and culture, the Berkshires was a rugged, sparsely populated frontier.  From the early days of revolutionary fervor and industrial enterprise to today’s tourism, many chilling stories remain. A lost girl haunts a cemetery in the town of Washington, and mysterious spirits still perform at Tanglewood.

From the ghostly halls of the Houghton Mansion in North Adams to the eerie events at the nearby Hoosac Tunnel, residents and visitors alike have felt fear and awe in the area’s hills, telling tales of shadowy figures, disembodied voices and spectral trains. Oakes leads this spirited journey through history with a special emphasis on the ghost lore of Ventfort Hall.

Oakes is a writer, teacher and singer/songwriter.  He has written for AAA, Canyon Ranch and a number of other publications and organizations. He has given ghost tours at The Mount for more than a decade and has represented the museum and its ghosts on Syfy’s Ghost Hunters, Jeff Belanger’s New England Legends series on PBS, The Apple Seed hosted by Sam Payne and on BYUradio.

Tickets for Robert Oakes’ talk are $20 and can be purchased at https://ventfort0109202020.eventbrite.com
