Gifford Pinchot's Grey Towers: Tickets Now On Sale For Popular October Programs

Tickets for two popular October theatrical programs-- the annual dramatic readings of selected works of Edgar Allan Poe and for the popular theatrical historical presentation in the Laurel Hill Cemetery-- at Gifford Pinchot’s Grey Towers National Historic Site in Milford, Pike County, are now available for sale to the public. 
The cemetery program, on October 19, will “bring to life” some of Milford’s earliest inhabitants as professional readers recite first-person accounts of their lives in the Laurel Hill Cemetery at Grey Towers. There will be two readings at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. and light refreshments will be served.  Click Here to purchase tickets.
As one of the town’s first graveyards, Laurel Hill is the final resting place for nearly 200 residents who helped shape the community in the early 1800s.
Registration is required and the program will be held rain or shine. Participants should meet in the Visitor Pavilion of the Grey Towers Visitor Parking Lot. Wear comfortable shoes as there is walking on uneven terrain.
On October 26, professional readers will pay tribute to Edgar Allan Poe with dramatic readings of selected works. There will be two readings at 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. Copies of Poe books were found in the historical Grey Towers collection and re-creating the readings is a popular seasonal event.  Click Here to purchase tickets.
Sponsored by the US Forest Service with support from the Grey Towers Heritage Association, the readings feature members of the American Readers Theatre Company and are appropriate for high school age and older. 
Dramatic readings were a common form of entertainment for 19th century families and the American Readers Theatre keeps the art form alive with pure traditional readers’ theatre format.
Space for both programs is limited and pre-purchase is encouraged.
