Ghosts and Legends Tour on Saturday, Oct.27

Halloween Ghosts and Legends Tour

The Bay County Historical Society sponsors trolley tours that leave the Antigue Center on Water Street every Saturday at 2pm in the warmer months. This last Saturday they had a Ghosts and Legends Tour that went to Pine Ridge Cemetery and to Elm Lawn.

These cemeteries are the resting place for people like James Birney, son of the great abolitionist, Andrew Walton, a member of Berdan's Sharpshooters, Charles Newkirk, an early Michigan Doctor and George Wellman, a deputy US marshall killed in the line of duty in the Johnson County Range War.

This tour continues to be very popular.
