Due to a torrential rain storm that approached and wanting to hit the road early to beat traffic back to NJ after our Kykuit tour, we had to cut short our tour of Philipsburg. What we were able to see, we enjoyed.

We went there to get scared and to see the adventure of the Headless HorseMan! It was very scary but meant for an older crowd! The actors were so scary and fun! I really enjoyed this Halloween scare!

The home and grounds are charming. It is a nice glimpse into the lives of the Phillips, as well as a glimpse of early America. We have visited twice. The house is haunted. We took a guided tour and everyone had an experience... the tour guide almost went white as a ghost when it happened. We asked if the place was haunted and suddenly, as if on queue, a VERY loud crash was heard from the next room. It sounded as if someone had dropped a cannonball onto the wood floor. We examined the room but nothing was out of place. And there was nothing that could have produced the sound. No one could explain it. That was memorable! They also do a Halloween event wherein you walk through the "haunted" grounds. It is VERY popular so plan on it taking longer than expected as the crowd turnout is heavy. We enjoyed it! It is quite well done.

Philipsburg Manor is one of my "go to" places when I have international visitors. Excellent place to tour and to learn. Thus I decided to attend their annual Cornucopia festival. Activities included a corn maze, blue grass band, and so on. Corn Maze was held under a tent (1st red flag) and it was parade barricades with corn stocks tied on every couple of feet. The band was cowboy songs not bluegrass. The good news is that everything is well arranged and full of activities for young children.

Cannot comment on this outside of the Halloween events provided in October. But, if you're into Halloween, this is THE place to visit! It was unlike anything I've ever experienced. The grounds are turned into a haunted delight with mazes, creatures, live sculptures and a headless horseman that is an absolute hoot! We stood along a fence to get into the maze and every so often the horseman on his black horse would run through the pasture. We were so delighted and laughed so hard we could hardly stand it. One of my most memorable experiences while on a vacation. LOVED IT!!
