Spirits of Sanford is hosting a Ghost Walk this Saturday, October 20th! The ghost walk will begin at the Historic Railroad House on Charlotte Avenue and travel along Chatham, Moore, and Steele streets, stopping at spooky local sites including the historic Buggy Factory, the Lee Furniture building, and the abandoned offices above Added Accents boutique. The walk will also stop at Karma Boutique & Coffee Bar for a presentation on the 1925 Coal Glen mine disaster, the worst coal mining disaster in North Carolina’s history.
Sanford City Councilman Jimmy Haire will be leading participants to haunted locales throughout downtown Sanford and will be telling stories about local history. “Some of the places we will be going by we’ve actually done investigations in, and have gotten some paranormal activity,” said Donna Strickland, event organizer and Spirits of Sanford co-founder.
The ghost walk is at 8PM and 10PM and is $20 per person. In the event of bad weather, the tour will be canceled.
