Presenters dress in period attire for the Gallatin Ghost Walk. SUBMITTED

The 17th annual Gallatin Ghost Walk begins Oct. 8 and runs every Friday and Saturday night through Nov. 6.

“This year we have historian, Civil War reenactor and former Rosemont site director Eli Geery assisting with the Ghost Walk,” said tour creator Donna Hartley Lucas. “We have a few unexpected guests and surprises.”

The family-friendly event is a local autumn tradition and presenters dress in authentic period attire.

“We are not a spook house attraction,” said Lucas, “Nothing scary jumps out at visitors, and we do not ‘ghost hunt,’ we leave that to other venues.

“We tell the history of Sumner County through the hauntings, paranormal events and random mysterious occurrences that seem to pervade our county more than perhaps any other geographical area in the South.”

Reservations are required for the Ghost Walk by calling 615-512-5299.

Tickets are $15 per person and the Facebook page has complete information on dates and times, a map and further information.

Lucas said there are also plans to host the first annual Dead of Winter pub/restaurant crawl in downtown Gallatin early next year.
