The Friendswood Historical Society will host its sixth annual Histor-Ween Saturday, Oct. 30 at The Annex (former Friendswood Junior High).

Halloween fun meets Friendswood history in the event that has 35-plus adult volunteers serving as guides and actors mixing up historic facts and the treats of Halloween together to make a fun night for all ages.

The event will featured a re-enactment of Friendswood’s first murder in front of the Perry House Museum, a campfire ghost story session organized by the Friendswood Library, a guided historical tour of the cemetery, a real hayride and a spook house artfully orchestrated by Friendswood High School student volunteers and the student council.

The event is scheduled from 7 to 9 p.m. and guests are welcome to drop in anytime during those hours.

Admission is $10 per person. The Annex/former Junior High is located at 402 Laurel, across from Perry Home.

The event is organized by The Friendswood Historical Society.

The Friendswood Historical Society is a non-profit organization incorporated in the State of Texas on Nov. 22, 1968. The membership is composed of those who appreciate the unique history of Friendswood and choose to support the Society’s mission with their dues and/or their volunteer labor.
