EVENT: NOVEMBER 2 (9AM-4PM)
HISTORY EMERGES FROM THE SHADOWS
This popular tour premiered in Jun3 2019 and returns for an encore this fall!
On lists and locations of haunted and supernatural regions, southeastern Ohio seems to frequent- ly rise to the top. From the Moonville Tunnel, the eerie structures at the Ridges, and the “spooky” graveyards, the Hocking Valley has drawn attention from New Age practitioners and “ghost hunt- ers” alike. But what about the documented history of these places scattered throughout the woods, abandoned company towns, railroads, and structures. This guided tour will journey to those leg- endary places, and hear from historians and authors who have researched and lived in them. Our excursion will include visits to the extinct village of Moonville, the former Athens Lunatic Asylum, and the site of the Mt. Nebo homestead that became nationally known as part of the Spiritualist Movement in the late 1800s. Participants will travel by van to the various locations and be treated to on board and walking tours. We will enjoy lunch and may even be treated to a surprise or two at these places!
