|Christ Episcopal Church – New Bern|
The New Bern Historical Society is ready for this year’s Ghostwalk: October 28th – 30th.
Historian John Leys of the New Bern – Craven County Library and member of the Historical Society, shared a glimpse of the upcoming Ghostwalk three day special event with me.
Ghostwalk 2010 sounds like a fun-filled re-enactment of times past in New Bern spanning the past 300 years.
Actors will be dressed in periodic attire and portray Caleb Bradham, Indian Chief Taylor, Surgeon General Latham, Madam Moore, Elvis, Harry Truman, Mark Twain and George Washington. Don’t miss the Ghostwalk to encounter over 20 more spirits that aren’t mentioned above.
Visit haunted spirits at numerous historic ghost sites to learn about their experiences in New Bern. Step back in time and visit the Attmore-Oliver House outfitted as the USO during World War II; meet the Stanly Hall Basketball Team; tour Cedar Grove cemetery for ghostly entertainment; learn about the Great Fire of 1922; meet inventor Caleb Bradham at the Birthplace of Pepsi Cola; and encounter spirits at the new North Carolina History Center. These are only a few of 16 plus ghost sites on the tour.
