Mr. Bane reaches out to her only to notice that half of her face is missing and she's sitting in a pool of blood. To his surprise, Jennifer has been feeding on his test animals.

2352 Route 10 West
Morris Plains, NJ 07950
This Halloween, celebrate like it’s 1913 with an after-hours tour of Gustav Stickley’s Log House, and learn about Victorian-era Halloween customs.
By 1913, Halloween was being celebrated by people across America as a night for amusement and superstition, mischief and fortune telling. Revelers spent Halloween night fluttering between fits of laughter and screams of pretend fright as games of divination predicted their fortunes in life and in love.
Our tour begins as night falls. But there’s no need to be frightened! By the 1910s, Halloween, not yet a holiday for children, was a night for amusement and superstition, mischief and fortune telling. Victorian era sensibilities had transformed traditional macabre customs associated with the night into playful parlor games and tricks, which provided a clever guise for match-making and romance at society parties. Light refreshments will follow to keep your spirits up!
$5 Members; $12 Non Members
Space is limited. Advance registration required; purchase tickets online or call 973.540.0311.
