Along the cobblestone streets of Zionsville stand buildings that each have their own unique history, including tales of who might still be lingering around long after their death. People can find out more about some of the city’s haunts by attending the 11th annual Ghost Walk. Sponsored by the Sullivan Munce Cultural Center, the Ghost Walk is a 45-minute walking tour through the Village in downtown Zionsville.
“It’s truly become a fall tradition for many families,” said Cynthia Young of the Sullivan Munce Cultural Center.
Tours start at the cultural center and a new group leaves every 15 minutes. Guides lead each group to seven locations, where a group of actors will interpret a local ghost story or legend. “Each story is based on actual facts that we pulled from newspapers and other Zionsville documents,” Young said. Besides enjoying some local haunts, participants will also learn about some of the unique architecture that surrounds the downtown area.
While this event might have a few haunted tricks up its sleeve, Young said it’s geared toward the entire family. Ticket reservations need to be made in advance by calling 873-4900. For center members, tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for kids ages 6 and up. For non-members tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for kids ages 6 and up. All children ages 5 and under are free. Proceeds from the Ghost Walk will go toward exhibits, events and programs that celebrate history and the arts.
