Here in Jacksonville, we take our history very seriously and we recognize the legacy that the pioneers left for us. We also recognize that some of our pioneers are still with us in the forms of spirits and ghosts. Hear more about these “restless” former residents when Historic Jacksonville again offers “Haunted History” walking tours on the first Friday evening of each month from May through October in 2017. Costumed tour guides will share both history and tales of pioneers whose spirits still dwell in many of our historic buildings.
Tours will continue at 7pm, 7:15pm, 7:30pm, and 7:45pm on the first Friday of each month through September. Tours will be offered at 6pm, 6:15pm, 6:30pm, 6:45pm and 7pm on both Friday and Saturday evenings on the second weekend in October.
