6Trick or Treating at Oaklands Mansion

Oaklands Mansion, 900 N Maney Avenue, Murfreesboro
Oct 31, 4pm – 7pm
Admission: Free

At the dead-end of North Maney Avenue you’ll find a tree-lined drive to the most famous mansion in Murfreesboro! The iron gates are open and the mansion, normally locked and secured, is ready to greet you on this rare night! Bring your little ghosts and goblins to the doors of the dimly lit Oaklands Mansion to offer their most haunting greeting. As the doors creak open to reveal the grand stair hall, and the family in mourning, you’ll see that this isn’t like any “haunted” house you’ve visited.

Victorian families stopped the clocks, shuttered the windows and draped their mirrors in black when a loved one died. Before funeral homes, the family’s parlor was the scene of their funerals and wakes.

“This is a unique opportunity to introduce kids to Oaklands in a new and exciting way! You’ll be helping to make special memories for them that will last a lifetime!” said James Manning, Executive Director of Oaklands Mansion.

By 1860, Oaklands was one of the most elegant homes in Middle Tennessee, situated on an over 1,500-acre plantation! Following the Civil War, it deteriorated from a majestic mansion to virtual ruins and, in the 1950’s, its very existence was threatened. Thankfully, the mansion was saved from the wrecking ball when a group of concerned ladies created Oaklands Association in 1959. Since then, the generosity of the community has provided for the restoration of Oaklands to its original splendor! By preserving the mansion and grounds, its unique history can be shared time and time again!

Trick-or-Treating at the “Old Maney Mansion” is free, open to the public. For more information, contact Oaklands Mansion at (615) 893-0022 or email [email protected]
