Join author Troy Taylor for another night of our “An Evening with…” series of events! This eerie evening will include a catered dinner, served in our private ballroom at the Mineral Springs Mall. After dinner, Troy Taylor will be presenting “America’s Sinister Strangers,” a mysterious look at some of history’s phantom attacks, mad gassers, phantom stabbers, black ghosts, killer clowns, and other bizarre events!

It’s going to be a special night of the strange, unusual, and the macabre – and you don’t want to miss it.
The history of America has been plagues by hundreds of mysterious figures that have wreaked havoc in since the days of colonial settlement. Our past is filled with strange accounts of phantom attackers, mysterious beings, and inexplicable assault.

Many of these figures seem to make their presence known in an area for a time and then vanish without a trace, leaving no clue as to their purpose or why they committed the strange acts that they did. Are they fiction or truth? Solid or supernatural? Human or otherworldly? Do they enter our existence from somewhere else and then simply step back to their own time and place and leave ours forever? Or could they be easier to explain? Are they merely odd loners with a penchant for science, a prank gone wrong, or a clever hoaxer intent on preserving their identity?

No one can say – but whoever these weird apparitions might be, they have left an indelible mark on the haunted landscape of America and have become a part of our strange history that few are familiar with – until now!

All Dinner and Spirits events will take place in Alton's haunted Mineral Springs Mall ballroom and will be catered. For more haunted tours, dinners, and spooky events see Rivers and Route's events page or visit www.altonhauntings.com
