People of Perkins House

In 2008 Perkins House Museum was “haunted by ghosts” (video projections) of former residents of the house. Using facts and quotes from the diaries of Simeon Perkins, the ghosts talked about life in the house from the perspective of Simeon Perkins, Elizabeth his wife, five of his children, and Mary Fowler, one of his indentured servants. Today, the ghosts have left the house and are now resting in peace. But their stories remain.
