The historic neighborhood of Daniels Hill will be this years site for the Lynchburg Historical Foundation’s annual ghost walk. Guests attending the ghost walk will hear about the neighborhood and its residents (some of whom have not left their homes, even after death).
This years ghost walk will start at Point of Honor (at their carriage house), the home of Dr. George Cabell who was Patrick Henry’s personal physician. The tour will take you up Cabell Street where your guide will stop at various homes and share stories about the original owners both while they were living and after they died. These homes were built by some of Lynchburgs most prominent citizens from the early to late 1800′s.
This is the first time the ghost walk has been in Daniels Hill neighborhood so you won’t want to miss this opportunity to learn about the neighborhood and its residents. Tours start at 6:30pm and run every 15-20 minutes. Tickets will be sold the night of the walk and are available on a first come, first served basis. Tours will be on October 24, 25 and 26 (Thursday, Friday and Saturday). If you have a group of 10 or more you can by advance tickets by calling the Lynchburg Historical Foundation at 434.528.5353.
One of the stops will be the Watts House at 404 Cabell Street, now The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast. Why not spend the weekend here and hear even more stories about the home and the Watts family. If you are tuned into the paranormal you may even get to experience an encounter with one of them. Disclaimer: Our ghosts are very friendly!
