"The Devill, the Witches, & the Enchanters..." A Haunted Evening at Historic Jamestowne. Peer into the world of our 17th century ancestors and learn what scared them the most. Hear actual eyewitness accounts of conjurations and witchcraft from 17th century Virginia, brought to life through character interpretations. Each story will be introduced with historical context that will offer how the perceived "supernatural" events evolved to blur logic and create fear for those who experienced them firsthand. And it is the legacy of this fear of the unknown, darkness, and the misunderstood that is still echoed every October 31st. (presented at 6:45 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.)
