Picture Story of the Week (10/15 to 10/21)

DOBBS FERRY, NY — For most of the year, the members of the Dobbs Ferry Woman’s Club hosts mahjong games, meetings, concerts, and other benign gatherings at their 19th-century mansion. Every Halloween, however, ghosts and ghouls inhabit the first floor, which the club opens to the public. That tradition continued Oct. 28 and 29. In the following photos, club member Carol Sommerfield, who organizes the haunting, acts out a story inspired by this year’s theme — the Dobbs Ferry Inn.
