Join us as we step back in time on Sunday, October 7th for the 2nd annual Cobblestone Museum Ghost Walk and visit several "ghosts" connected to the Cobblestone Museum's past. Tour guides will lead you through a walking tour of 10 different locations on the Museum's campus, including a cobblestone schoolhouse, the oldest cobblestone church in North America, and a cobblestone parsonage, all National Historic Landmarks. Along the way guests will “meet” apparitions of such notables as newspaper editor Horace Greeley, who once owned the Cobblestone Parsonage; railroad sleeping car inventor George Pullman, who attended the cobblestone church; and Grace Bedell, who encouraged President Lincoln to grow his iconic beard. Over twenty such reincarnations are planned to make the visit truly remarkable.
Tours begin every half hour beginning at 1pm and will last about 90 minutes. The final tour will set out from the lower level of the Cobblestone Church at 4pm. The event will be held drizzle or shine, so be prepared. A half mile of walking is required so comfortable shoes are a must. The tour also includes several steps, so it is not fully accessible. The cost for the Ghost Walk is $10 for adults and $7 for Cobblestone Society Members. Kids 12 and under are $5 and those under 2 are free. Pre-registration guarantees a spot on one of 7 tours departing on the half-hour. Pre-registration can be made in person at the museum or online at cobblestonemuseum.org. Walk-ins on October 7 will be accommodated in any open slots remaining.
