The Legend of Hannah Cranna and Other “Not So Spooky” Stories.
Monday, October 29th

In the late 1700’s / early 1800’s Monroe had about 1,000 residents, perhaps none so infamous though, as Hannah Cranna. Come hear the legend of the “witch” of old Monroe, along with a collection of other Halloween stories. Costumes optional.
