I just took this tour for the first time over the weekend and it was a very special experience. I have never had a paranormal experience before and was curious as to what would happen on this tour. Little did I know, there are ghost stories either in very close proximity to or AT multiple locations I have resided or rented in this town! My favorite part of the tour was feeling close with my group by the end. In sharing chills or laughs about the paranormal, we developed a connection and that is really unique. The additional background history lessons were also phenomenal. Our tour guide went over the top for us. Now I will look out for my new ghost acquaintances from my art studio on Grand or peering through my kitchen window overlooking the lake.
