A HAUNTED HISTORY: Camp Helen State Park to hold seventh annual Ghost Walk and History Tour

Published: Thursday, October 4, 2012 at 04:40 PM.

“They’ll learn about the ghost of G. G.,” Cherry said of the man-turned-ghost who died by an accident many, many years ago. “His ghost looms in the state park. You’ll hear about his story and about who has seen him.”

She said that storytellers will bring the stories to life by taking the visitors to locations of ghost sightings and supposed last resting places.

But, Cherry said with a laugh, in all years past, nobody has ever seen a ghost. 

“You just learn about their spirits,” said Cherry. “It’s an excellent opportunity to learn about Camp Helen, we use the history in every one of our stories.”

To go to each station should take about an hour and a half, and visitors are welcome to come and leave as they please within the three-and-a-half hour event, 5 to 8:30 p.m. Oct. 13.

Visitors are encouraged to dress up in costume and flashlights are recommended. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for children 12 and younger. For information, contact Lynn Cherry at 215-4651 or lcherry@cdc-s.com.

In addition to helping maintain and learn about the park, “it can really get you get you in the Halloween spirit,” said Cherry.
