Apalachicola Area Historical Society Presents the Fall Historic Ghost Walk
October 28, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
– The Apalachicola Area Historical Society invites you to join them for their annual Fall Historic Ghost Tour on Saturday, October 28, 2023 from 6:30-8:30 pm at the Chestnut Street Cemetery on Highway 98 in Apalachicola. The theme of this year’s event will be “Lost at Sea”. All proceeds from the Ghost Walk benefit the preservation of the Chestnut Street Cemetery.
Adventurous guests are summoned to the Ghost Walk to meet Apalachicola’s citizens from the other side and hear legends and lore from the past. Hauntings will abound when local history enthusiasts don the garb and take on the persona of the cemetery’s notable inhabitants to tell their tale of life and death in Apalachicola from more than 180 years ago. Visitors are guided through the cemetery along candle-lit paths to meet some of Apalachicola’s historic citizens.
Tickets are on sale now and are available in person at the Raney House Museum, online at at https://aahs.wildapricot.org/events , and at the gate. The cost is $10 for adults and free for students. The Raney House Museum is located at 128 Market Street, at the corner of Avenue F in historic downtown Apalachicola and is open from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm Tuesday through Saturday. Although the house is under exterior restoration, the AAHS is attempting to keep it open on its regular schedule.
The historic Chestnut Street Cemetery is located at the corner of Ave E (Hwy 98) & 8th St in Apalachicola, Florida. Funded in part by the Franklin County Tourist Development Council.
