Huntsville Ghost Walk uncovers Huntsville's haunted history | Events
The Huntsville Ghost walk is going on this Halloween season. I went on the tour because my house is on it and I wanted to know why groups of tourists were stopping in my driveway and taking pictures every weekend.
The tour was a lot of fun and a little bit of a workout. The tour guides (ours was Bob) dress up and lead groups on a walk through historic downtown Huntsville. We chose the Twickenham tour. Bob was very knowledgeable and I can tell he enjoys imparting his knowledge to visitors. I love living history lessons, and this certainly is one.
Many people drive through Twickenham and other historic Huntsville neighborhoods and wonder about certain homes. Some of the houses just look spooky from the outside. If you've ever wondered about the Pope mansion or the old governor's house, you definitely want to hear what the tour guides have to say.
One of my favorite stops (besides my house!) was the Weeden Home. Bob told us stories of some creepy events and haunted happenings. The video gives you a taste of what the tour was like, but there is so much more you will want to check out for yourself.
The cost of the tour is only $8 and well worth it. The walk lasted about two hours and was packed with fun stops. I recommend taking a group and making a night out of it. The walks start promptly at 6:00 p.m., so get there early. You can purchase tickets at Harrison Brothers Hardware on the square.
You will want to bring a camera with you. Several photos reveal orbs and other paranormal activity. You can view some of the pictures on the Huntsville Ghost Walk website.
