Flashlight Nights in Oaklands Mansion

Explore Murfreesboro's most mysterious mansion and experience some of the unusual mourning customs and creepy superstitions of the Victorian era at Oaklands Mansion. As the doors creak open to reveal the town's spookiest historic home, guides in mourning attire will be stationed through-out the mansion to answer questions. Flashlight Nights are sponsored in part by Title Boxing Club of Murfreesboro.


As you explore the dark corners and dimly lit parlors, you will find unusual and curious items. For your safety, please bring your own flashlight. These special evening openings of the mansion will take place on Friday, October 27 and Saturday, October 28, 2017, from 7:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. with admission of $10 for adults and $5 for students & children.


"While in the downtown area, enjoying the fall fun, take the opportunity to see Oaklands after dark! When your flashlight tour is over, if you dare, take a walk on the dimly lit trails of the wetlands and see the dark reflections of Maney Spring" said James Manning, Executive Director of Oaklands Mansion.


Tickets are $10 for adults and $5.00 for students & children. Purchase your tickets in advance on our website or in the gift shop. Be prepared to show proof of payment at the front doors of the mansion to avoid ticket line in the gift shop. For your safety, Oaklands main drive will be closed. Please park at Oaklands Park Picnic Pavilion at 427 Roberts Street. You will then walk to the mansion to begin your tour!
