Join us for our next General Meeting

HellsGate Haunted House
A "family friendly" tour of Lockport's Haunted House


Place: HellsGate Haunted House

Date & Time: Sunday, October 28 11:45 am

Here are the specifics:  Sunday October 28 LAGHS members will meet at the 13th St Train Station at 11:45 am.  At Noon we will board a bus to take us to the Haunted House which is located near Dellwood West on Canal St. It is a $10 per person donation for the Disabled Patriot Fund but if you are part of the LAGHS group on the tour LAGHS will cover the cost.  If someone wants to donate extra, they can, but if you are part of the LAGHS tour, we will cover the cost. The tour should take about an hour and then we will get back on the bus which will take us back to our cars at the train station.

This is a great way to let our members see this great new Lockport attraction without the “scares”.
