Event Details

Get ready for the first All Hallow’s Eve Victorian Ball at the Historic Fourth Ward School building!
There aren’t many Victorian buildings in the American West ~ and as the last-standing Second Empire school building in the entire US, we are very proud of this unique building! It’s even the inspiration for Disneyland Europe’s “Phantom Manor” that stands in their wild-west themed Frontierland.
In the Disneyland story, gold was struck on Big Thunder Mountain, making the owner Henry Ravenswood a wealthy man. And while Frontierland all has the gritty wild-west look, Ravenswood Manor was based off of the story and aesthetics of the wealth of Virginia City in its boom. And Ravenswood’s manor, now the “Phantom Manor” after his ruin, is styled off of our very own Fourth Ward School building. Whether or not there are any phantoms here, you’ll have to come see for yourself.
So why not come dance with spirits (both ethereal and liquid) in this 134 year old treasure and get spooky with flashlight tours of the museum, music and dancing, fortune telling, and a costume contest.
*This party is 21+ as we will have alcohol (though the specifics of how it will be distributed is still in the works).
