Hofstra University Ghost Tour Plus Lecture on an Early Long Island Witch Trial

Mr. Hofstra
Happy Halloween! Today, Hofstra University will have its first ever Ghost Tour which will take place on campus at 6:15pm. Along with the tour, there will be apple cider and apple cider donuts. Participants will meet various Hofstra dignitaries who died on campus and learn about some notable murders that happened nearby before the university formed in the 1935. I will be playing Mr. Hofstra who died in Hofstra Hall in 1932. If you are in the area, I hope to see you there!

Just prior to the tour, there will be a lecture at 4:30 by Tara Rider about Goody Garlick who was tried for witchcraft on Long Island. The trial took place three decades before the Salem Witch Trials. The lecture should prove to be informative about the early history of Long Island.
