Ripped from the Headlines…

The Landmark Society Ghost Walk brings to “life” stories that could be ripped from today’s headlines – but were witnessed by past generations.  And it is our special talent to bring back those Rochesterians – to call them from their eternal rest – to share their experiences. You’ll meet these “ghosts of Rochester’s past” as you indulge in a rapidly dwindling hobby – an evening stroll through a beautiful historic neighborhood.

Have you been on other ghost walks, or thought it might not be your cup of tea? The Landmark Society Ghost Walk is different from other ghost walks in the area.   It’s a night-time guided walking tour, where you’ll follow lantern-bearing guides down darkened streets of one of Rochester’s most interesting architectural neighborhoods.  The guides will lead you to beautiful homes – and the “ghosts” will appear.   Okay, maybe they are not ghosts, but tremendously talented actors in authentic period costumes.  You will believe in them, as they bring to life events from our past – stories so dark, so gruesome, and so amazing – you will have a hard time believing they are true. But they are!

The Landmark Society Ghost Walk is recommended for anyone who enjoys theatre, history, architecture, a stroll in the night, and ghastly, moving, or humorous true stories; expertly performed.  It is not recommended for children under 8, due to the content of some stories and the length of the performances.

Ghost Walk 2012 will take place Friday, October 26 and Saturday, October 27. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. The first tour will depart at 6:30 p.m. Doors close at 9 p.m.
