We try to go on these ghost walks mostly to get some local history, and also to see old houses and buildings that we might otherwise miss -- they did a good job on that. We still have to study our photos to see if we caught anything, but we thought this walk was very well done.

Great tour! It was a perfect mix of history and ghost stories. It was an easy walk (only a couple of blocks) and the stories were very interesting.

Devyn was so knowledgeable and easy to talk with. She walked at a comfortable pace, in case anyone has limitations. This town has a lot of history and great stories!
