To get in the mood for spooky fun, join us on October 16 or 17 for a haunted tour of the Old Courthouse Square on Old Main Street. Courtney Stephens, Director of Tourism for Warrensburg Convention and Visitors Bureau, and Amanda Jacobson, Warrensburg City Planner and staff for Historic Preservation Commission, have hatched a plan that is becoming a community fundraising event to benefit the Johnson County Historical Society. Watch for further details about Warrensburg Fright Nights.

October 16 & 17 the old town square will come to life (or afterlife?) with the ghosts of Warrensburg’s past. Each evening will begin with a play–Too Long in the Field– set six months after the conclusion of the Civil War. Written by educator and reenactor Anne Mallinson, the play highlights the troubled post-war era. The bride and groom are from families on opposite sides of the conflict so don’t expect a quiet ceremony. After the play, audience members are invited outside to look for specters who will haunt the square. Visitors may also tour down old Market Street to Reese School on a haunted hayride. Notable former residents assume ghostly form through the research of Zach Maxon and his students at the Gateway Educational Center.
