The Sturgis House Tour Oct 24

October 22 marked 75 years since Mr. Floyd was killed (1934). While my team and I did our own investigation on the 22nd, Sturgis Funeral Home had a tour of their establishment that included the morgue area, autopsy tools, and numerous memorabilia of Charles Arthur "Pretty Boy" Floyd.

These pics were taken by Dave McElroy. He and his wife, Mary Ann went on the tour and even got the free fan with Mr. Floyd's picture on it.

Sturgis Bed and Breakfast, as it is called now, did a beautiful job recreating the area as it was in 1934. It is estimated that just as many people toured it today as they did in 1934 to view Mr. Floyd's body.

It was a wait to get in, but Dave says it was worth it. I agree.

The Spread Eagle Tavern Ghost Walk

Here are just a few scenes of the ghost walk we went on tonight. We were in Hanoverton and toured the local area. It was a GREAT tour! I was so glad we went. I thought we were going inside the Spread Eagle, as did many of the people who came with us, but it was all outside. I will be busy all this week just writing about all the stories we heard! I LOVED THEM!!
It is late and tomorrow is another day, but just wanted to share some of these moments with you so you can see what you missed if you didn't get to go. Wait until you hear the stories! And the cemetery!! It was the best ever!! The story told there was better than any I have ever heard!
There is one more tour next Saturday, Oct 31 at 7pm. If you get a chance, go out there, pay $5 and have an enjoyable 2 hours. DON'T PASS ON GOING TO THE CEMETERY. IT IS THE BEST PART!
