New Windsor, NY —More than two hundred years ago, as the sun set, a foreboding darkness cloaked the landscape bidding the most insidious creatures to come out and do their worst. The tamed retreated to their abodes to wait the liberating first morning light. By candlelight learn what role ghosts, specters, apparitions, criminals and other denizens of the night played in the lives of these people. Reservations required. Please call (845) 561-1765 X22 for more information. New Windsor Cantonment is located at 374 Temple Hill Road (Route 300) in New Windsor, New York three miles southeast of the intersection of I-87 and I-84.
