T workers make spooky find at Government Center

The creepy costumes are at least 60 years old.


These costumes—the masks are sewed to capes—were found rolled into a ball in a “small, hollow section of concrete that was poured more than 60 years ago’’ on the Blue Line platform at Government Center Station, according to an MBTA spokesman.

T spokesman Joe Pesaturo said they were uncovered last week, just in time for Halloween, during the ongoing work at the station. The station has been closed since early 2014.

“Despite these ghoulish garments, the work at Government Center Station remains on schedule, with the re-opening set for the spring,’’ Pesaturo said.
