Haunted Argenta Boos & Brews
October 10 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Boos and Brews was a resounding success for 2018, so we are keeping this party rolling! This is the walking tour but with a twist. We will look at the more lascivious side of Argenta! We will be going into two of the haunted locations and doing some seance work in the style of Victorian seance mediums. Maybe something or someone will join us?
This two hour ghost tour will tell the stories of Argenta’s history from the time of its founding through the rebirth and revival. How was Argenta founded? Why do some think it was cursed? You will learn about the original buildings, most of which still stand, the stories connected to those buildings and the inhabitants, some of whom never left.
You will hear the story of Anastasia, who still haunts a location. See photos of the Argenta Devil. Another place has an unknown entity who has his favorite spot from which he never moves. You will visit the locations where the Argenta Race Riots happened and stand in the places where history was made.
We can’t guarantee you will see a ghost, but we have some pretty interesting photographs that people have captured and even a reportedly haunted artifact. There have definitely been some unusual things happen at the seance as well. You never know what you may see!
THIS IS A WALKING TOUR, SO PLEASE DRESS APPROPRIATELY.
We will meet at the gazebo at the foot of the Main Street Bridge, at the intersection of Washington and Main, at the back of the US Bank building at Faucette Park. The tour will start promptly and we will leave from there.
In the event that is simply too cold or rainy, the event will still happen, but we will go to three or more indoor spots to tell the stories and enjoy the entertainment.
