As usual, it is free!
Next weekend is packed for us. April 17 is the Jakes Lock tour, which is at Beaver Creek State Park at about 4 pm. We are walking back to Grey's, Vondergreens, Lock #39(Jake's Lock) and Lock #40, as well at taking a look at 5 foundations of homes or businesses that existed back in the 1800's. You will need a camera for this one, too. April 18 is the Grimms Bridge tour. Bring a camera, sturdy shoes, etc. Again, 4pm.
My crew and I are, as always, looking for ghosts, but we throw in as much history as we can dig up. Unless specified, all of our events are free. When we charge, it is ALWAYS for a charity of some kind. (We have only done that once so far, but we are very interested in finding other charities out there that would like to try it for a fund raiser! We don't charge anyone for that either.) Any questions or want to let me know you are coming? Email me! firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, Carmel Achor Road is named from a town that, like Sprucevale and Cannons Mills, died many years ago. It is on a map my crew member, Dave, found. There is Rogersville(which is now Rogers), Millrock, Hartville(which is now Negley) and Achor. The map is dated 1854. I guess that also explains Achor Cemetery, which is also on Carmel Achor Road, and is tomorrows story.
