It’s that time of year again….when Old City Cemetery, in Lynchburg Virginia, conducts it’s Candlelight Tours.  Visit various sites throughout the cemetery where professional actors will portray the lives of several of the cemeteries “residents.”  Always interesting, educational, moving and sometimes funny the stories told delight people of all ages.  And when else can you walk around a cemetery after dark?

The tours take place on October 21, 22, 27, 28 and 29, 2011 beginning at 6:30pm each evening.  The last tour will depart from the visitor center at 7:50pm.  Each tour lasts about one hour, travels over uneven ground, cobblestones and walkways so wear good walking shoes and bring along a flashlight.

Guests staying at The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast at least two nights, including a tour night, will receive complimentary tickets to one tour (limit two per room.)  As in year’s past advance reservations and tickets are necessary and tickets will sell out prior to the 21st.  Call 434.846.1388, mention this package, book your accomodations and secure a tour time.  Your tickets will be waiting for you upon arrival.  This package cannot be combined with any other special, package, voucher or discount.  Subject to availability.

While staying with us enjoy a breakfast featuring our signature dish for October, Pumpkin Waffles (see post 10/4/11 for recipe.)
