The Cortland County Convention and Visitors Bureau (CCVB) announced yesterday (October 29) that Cortland County has officially joined the Haunted History Trail of New York State.
In its fifth year as an official tourism trail, the Haunted History Trail of New York State includes over 80 spooky and reportedly haunted locations that offer experiences for those interested in the paranormal.
From hotels to restaurants to a haunted asylum, the Haunted History Trail offers over 400 miles of ghostly adventures across nine vacation regions in New York.
Cortland’s 1890 House Museum is the lone representative of the county on the list.
The former home of industrialist Chester Wickwire has long embraced its spooky past, hosting numerous paranormal tours and this year adding a Victorian Séance to its calendar.
Chester Wickwire passed away in the home in 1910 and it has since been rumored to be haunted.
The Convention & Visitors Bureau says it’s continuing to search for more locations
across the County to add to the trail.
Three additional venues are being finalized now and should be added to the trail before end of the year.
