The historic Kearney House in the Palisades Interstate Park in New Jersey hosts a number of events each year when visitors can experience what it may have been like in the mid-19th century — when Mrs. Kearney, a widow who had brought up nine children at the house, also kept a dockside tavern there.

Punch & Pie at Mrs. Kearney's tavern

On Friday evenings, October 20 and November 3, the staff at the Kearney House will host the popular “Punch & Pie” programs, during which about twenty guests enjoy an evening of spiced punch, freshly baked pies and other morsels, and plenty of good cheer — all served by real candlelight and the glow of stone hearths. From beneath his top hat, Mr. Thaddeus MacGregor (by day a musician and teacher who lives in Englewood) will provide music from Mrs. Kearney’s day, while guests enjoy tall tales and real-life adventure yarns about life along Hudson’s River as related by Kearney House director Eric Nelsen. Ample time is allowed for guests to socialize with one another — as well as with staff dressed in period garb — or to explore the house by candlelight.

“Tales of the Macabre” at Mrs. Kearney’s tavern

Tales of the Macabre at Mrs. Kearney's tavern

On Halloween weekend, guests at the historic Kearney House will have a chance to delve into another aspect of nineteenth-century life, in which the tavern was a popular place for people to gather and share the latest in the printed word. From 8 to 10 on the evenings of Friday, October 27 and Saturday, October 28, guests will thrill to classic tales of horror by Edgar Allan Poe read aloud — as was commonly done by the fireside at homes and taverns across America. The evening will include mulled cider heated over the hearth and light refreshments. The texts will be selected and read by Kearney House director Eric Nelsen, who noted that the program “helps bring to life a sometimes forgotten aspect of the world before television and other mass media.”

"Guests thrill to a reading from Edgar Allan Poe at “Tales of the Macabre” at the Kearney House. Mr. Nelsen reads “The Raven” at “Tales of the Macabre” at the Kearney House.

The “Tales of the Macabre” programs are from 8 to 10 PM. The fee is $8 per guest if reserved in advance through PayPal, or $10 at the door (if spaces remain). Guests over 21 are welcome to bring their own beer or wine to the programs.
