Holliday-Dorsey-Fife Museum hosts 5th annual Historic Cemetery Spirit Walk

For the fifth consecutive year, storytelling and history will intermingle at the Historic Cemetery when spirit guides lead visitors through the cemetery as they hear personal stories from the “ghosts” of historic Fayette residents. The tours will take place on Friday, Oct. 19 and Saturday, Oct. 20 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the Historic Train Depot and Welcome Center through Friday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Tickets may also be purchased at the Cemetery each night beginning at 6 p.m. All ticket holders will be given a half hour time slot, and will take the tour in groups of 10 to 15 people. Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children 12 and under (babies and toddlers up to age 4 are free).

For both nights, visitors can meet real live ghost hunters from the West Georgia Paranormal Research Society as they share their results from studying the Holliday-Dorsey-Fife Museum and see a recent photograph of a captured spirit. While in line, visitors can enjoy historic southern music performed by local musicians, as well as free hot chocolate and treats.

Also, for the month of October, a special mourning exhibit featuring Victorian Mourning Styles & Rituals will be displayed at the museum. Mourning jewelry, gowns and letters will be displayed from the 1800’s. The museum is open Thursday – Saturday from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
