MOLL DYER ROCK
Visit Moll 'Dyer Rock at Tudor Hall Manor. This local landmark is believed to hold the now-fading handprint of local legend Moll Dyer, a local healer who died under tragic circumstances after being accused of witchcraft in the late 1600's. Many visit the site and leave gifts and trinkets for Moll at its new site at Tudor Hall Manor, but beware, many believe that those who touch the rock will be cursed by Moll. Mark your calendars and join us on February 26th for Moll Dyer Day, a soon to be three-day celebration filled with festivities from scavenger hunts, ghost walks, paranormal tours, and more.
