The Halloween Costume Party and Haunted Mansion is the annual
fundraiser for the preservation of The Duke Mansion, a non-profit bed-
and-breakfast inn and meeting place.

Built in 1915 and tripled in size by its most famous owner, James
Buchanan Duke, The Duke Mansion has been home and host to leaders of
the 20th century. Duke's most lasting legacies, including Duke
University, Duke Energy, and the Duke Endowment, took shape at the
home. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Mansion
is now operated as a non-profit with all proceeds being used to
preserve and protect this community treasure. Find out more
