Gallatin Ghost Walk, a 15-year Sumner County tradition is back with even more spine-tingling tales of ghosts, haunts and the supernatural, Friday and Saturday nights beginning October 11 at 7 p.m.

“Ghost Walk intertwines the diverse history of Sumner County with stories of spirits and mysterious happenings,” says tour creator and presenter Donna Hartley Lucas.

“Gallatin’s public square is called the most haunted public square in America, and with good reason, ” says Hartley Lucas, adding , “There are 16 identifiable ‘spirits’ in one building alone: the former law office of Andrew Jackson, and no matter where you go in the county, local lore and legend includes ghosts and paranormal experiences related to our colorful history.”

“The Ghost Walk is a family-friendly event; we are not a 'spook house' venue and there are no scary masks or gory characters; our presenters do dress in period attire,” Hartley Lucas notes.

She adds, “We walk the Square and several blocks surrounding the Square, treating guests to stories of old Sumner County and her 'spirits,’ and the unique history that makes our area so special. So, slow down, take a walk with us and see things you don't see when you are driving hurriedly by... you might even see a 'ghost'.... some of our guests have!”

Reservations are required. Call 512-5299 for details. Price is $15 per person, the tour takes about two hours and is most appropriate for ages 8 and up.
