The ghost walk was a blast. The weather was perfect fall weather, clear and just a little chilly. It was still light when we started the first walk, but darkness came quickly and made for a fine, spooky finish.
Lots and lots of stories...once again I dug into history to learn more about Ripley, the people, the places and the strange things that have happened here.
And each walk, I hear more stories from those attending.
We had visits from a sheriff, a Confederate soldier, a ghostly woman and a wandering preacher during the walk that took us from around the courthouse and up to an old cemetery,
then back to the center of town where there are lots of tales.
The first weekend walks are over, but we'll do it again next week.
Many thanks to the Ripley Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Jackson Players drama group for making this happen!
(And the scariest thing I saw all night... Larry clowning for the camera!)
