Ghostly spirits are expected to take over downtown Beaufort while the Exchange Club hosts its 26th annual Ghost Tours beginning Friday, Oct. 12. Sign up now to take a carriage ride or walking tour through Beaufort’s Historic District while listening to haunting tales of the area. Tours last about an hour and will run in the evenings of Oct. 12-13, 19-21, 26-28, and 30. All proceeds benefit the Child Abuse Prevention Association (CAPA) of Beaufort County.
Some of Beaufort’s oldest residents have shared stories from their childhood and the Exchange Club of Beaufort brings these stories to life each October. Costumed storytellers spellbind tour participants with the ghostly happenings while traveling the Spanish moss-lined streets of downtown. The oldest ghost in America is said to live in “The Castle,” a 19th century renovated estate located on the river in downtown Beaufort. Beware, ghostly visions have been known to appear on past tours. Walking tour tickets are $12 for all ages and carriage tours are $12 for children ages 3-11 and $22 for adults. All children must be accompanied by an adult. A pet- and stroller-friendly walking tour leaves each night at 7 p.m.
Reservations are strongly recommended and can be made online at www.capabeaufort.org or by calling 843-52-GHOST.
