Ghost Walk tour of Historic Federal Hill

This year’s ghost walk will be in the Federal Hill Historic District.  Mark your calendars to join volunteers of the Lynchburg Historical Foundation as they guide you on a walking tour of the neighborhood stopping at numerous houses to share stories of days gone by and those residents who, for whatever reason, decided to stay in their home, even after death.

The dates for the ghost walk are October 21, 22, and 23, 2010.  Tickets are sold the night of the event starting at 6:00pm and are sold on a first come first served basis.  There will be NO rain dates. The tour will start at 1101 Federal Street (intersection with 11 Street).  Tours start at 6:30pm and  every 15-20 minutes thereafter.  The last tour leaves at 8:30pm.  Ticket prices are $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for children.  Group reservations for 10 or more may be made in advance by calling the Foundation office.   Proceeds from this event will go to the Federal Hill Historical Society and the Lynchburg Historical Foundation.  For more information call (434) 528-5353.  This event is sponsored by Tharp Funeral Home and Crematory.

If you are staying at the Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast in Lynchburg during one of these tour dates you can receive a free ticket to the event if you mention “Ghosts of Historic Lynchburg” when making your reservation. This offer cannot be combined with any other offer or discount.  This weekend requires a two night minimum stay to receive your free ticket.
