Fire and Fright at Ramsey House

Bring your blanket or stadium chair, favorite roasting stick and join the staff of the historic Ramsey House in Knoxville for a very special October 2015 event, Fire and Fright. This event will kick off the Halloween season with the telling of ghost stories around a roaring bonfire. There will be hot dogs to roast and s’mores to enjoy for all in attendance. Pellissippi Community College students will be writing original ghost tales as an English project and will share them with attendees.

The Ramsey House Fire and Fright takes place Saturday October 10, from 7:30-9:30 pm.

Admission is $10 for adults, children 12 and under free. Admission includes a hot dog, beverage and s’mores package for all attendees including children.

Also known as Swan Pond, Ramsey House was constructed circa 1797 by English architect Thomas Hope for Colonel Francis Alexander Ramsey (1764–1820), whose family operated a plantation at the site until the U.S. Civil War. In 1969, the house was added to the National Register of Historic Places for its architecture and its role in the region’s early 19th-century history.

Historic Ramsey House is located at 2614 Thorngrove Pike, Knoxville.
