— The spirits of long-gone Dayton residents will ride again Friday and Saturday, Oct. 12 and 13.
The Huffman Historic Neighborhood Association’s biannual guided home tour “The Spirit of Huffman” will feature nine homes decorated for the Halloween season.
The homes include those renovated through Rehabarama, a home that housed the neighborhood post office and two houses that were doctors’ offices.
Friday’s tours are 6 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. Saturday’s tours are 4 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.
Visitors will “encounter an extensive collection of Halloween decorations, marble mantles, one-of-a-kind woodwork, bay windows, original hitching posts for horses, original carriage houses, carpenter’s lace, fretwork, corbels, towers and curved-glass windows,” according to a press release.
Taglined “Where Halloween and History Collide,” the tour includes looking inside homes, volunteers playing Huffman residents from a century ago, and “close “encounters of the Huffman Kind.”
The neighborhood was established from the 1860s to 1890s by Williams P. Huffman and includes a collection of Queen Anne, Italianate and Eastlake Victorian homes.

Many have driven past this mural on Third and Linden. One of the things we're most excited about is bringing it to life! Thanks to the wonderful actors of @blackboximprov we've got something incredible in store for The Spirit of Huffman Tour of Historic Homes.
