SALEM, Va. (WFXR) — Calling all the spooky season enthusiasts, The Salem Museum’s 24th Annual Ghost Walk is returning!

Visitors from the land of the living will walk just over half a mile on a tour of East Hill Cemetery as “ghosts” tell stories of historical characters. Stories include Revolutionary War hero Andrew Lewis, the proprietors of the Lake Spring resort, the founding of Salem, and the history of the Carver School.

The Salem Museum said the tour is for the whole family “These walking tours are family-friendly, fun and informative, but not scary.”

East Hill Cemetary will come alive when it gets dark on October 6-8, the museum says tours leave every 15 minutes from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The museum recommends purchasing tickets in advance to reserve your preferred tour time. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students of any age, kids three and under are free.

Tickets can be purchased at the museum as well as on the Salem Museum’s website linked here. They want to remind everyone that the 2021 walks were completely sold out. A sign language interpreter will be offered on Thursday, Oct. 6 at 6 p.m.

If it rains the event will be held inside the museum.
