On Friday Oct 11, when the doors open (6:30 p.m.) the Hauberg Estate is going dark for the “Flashlight Tour – A Nocturnal Adventure.” The Hauberg Estate is located at 1300 24th Street, in Rock Island, IL. Inside the mansion, all the lights have been turned off and guests will receive a Hauberg Estate flashlight to navigate their way.

Tours begin at 7:30 p.m. and guides will illuminate pieces throughout the house.  You’ll appreciate the architecture and Halloween decorations in a spine-tingling new way.

Tickets for the Flashlight Tour are $20 and available on Eventbrite.com or by calling (309) 373-5080. Guests on the 21+ Flashlight Tour will need to navigate stairs. And, of course, the Cash Bar will be open for your liquid courage.

You’ll want to check out this Nocturnal Adventure, because things aren’t always what they appear to be!

The Friends of Hauberg Civic Center Foundation is a 501(c) (3) organized for charitable and educational purposes to oversee the preservation and sustainability of the Hauberg Estate, Mansion and Gardens.
