Believe it or Not Walkabout

Linda is quite the historian and took us on a Friday 13th group walk along our main street. She told us about the past and of ghosts inhabiting various buildings.

For better or wrose, Sue and I have the habit of being very punctual. We were the first to show up, and I squeezed this shot of Linda (who dressed for the occasion) and Sue while we waited for others.



Others began to filter in.



Soon there was a large contingent and off we went. We met in front of this building which used to be a hotel and now has the mural of Roy Brown, the local man credited with shooting down the Red Baron.



Town hall in the background of the first photo and the historic Moore House in the second.




By the Queens Hotel.




Walking from stop to stop.




We finished at the other (south) end of Bridge Street by the present Grand Hotel, formerly the Mississippi Hotel.



And just a few more group shots.

Seems like every town large or small has it special places, legends and stories. And those few people who know them all and can share them in an interesting way. I love that....

I know that many town and cities do similar walking tours and how perfect that yours was on Friday the 13th! perhaps in future posts, you will share some of what you learned about any spirits.
