German Village Society has partnered with Columbus Landmarks Foundation to debut a new walking tour appropriate to the season.
“When Spirits Roamed The Village” will feature the stories and architecture of our 19th century neighborhood. Five locations and their stories will be featured-from the light-hearted tales of ghostly tea parties and the house that needs no dusting to the somber and true stories of the county poorhouse and a grief-stricken mother. Included are additional tales of occasional poltergeists, creatures that didn’t appreciate a good rehabbing, and Halloween customs in the Village in the past.
Tickets are $10 for GVS or Landmarks members – $20 for nonmembers. Tour dates are October 19, 26 and 27. Tours leave Beck Street School at 6 p.m. each night.
