The Boogeymans Bride Haunted Field Walk
The Boogeymans Bride Haunted Field Walk is a family- friendly event offered each fall at the Southern Oregon Historical Society’s Hanley Farm, helps keep this pioneer tradition alive. It will be performed between 7 and 9 pm on October 16, 22 and 23, 2016. Each performance will last about 25 minutes.
The Boogeyman’s Bride is drawn from a classic folk tale and was a favorite of the American humorist, Mark Twain. Such ghost stories, told at family and social gatherings were part of American folk tradition. On the frontier, tales of dark and mysterious visitations, recounted by skilled storytellers, captured the listeners’ imagination, provided entertainment and imparted moral lessons.
