G12P's Columbiana County Legends Tour for 2011

Esther Hale

General John Hunt Morgan
Our Columbiana County Legends Tour kicks off this year, bigger and better than ever.  Our first event is May 7 at Beaver Creek State Park. The Jackson of the Valley Civil War Reenactment  is scheduled to be there May 7 and 8.  We will be giving a Legends Ghost Walk at 9:30 pm Saturday night on May 7.  They have asked to be scared so expect a few surprises on this one!
You will see most of the characters pictured here for this event.  There will be 10 Legends all together, including two new ones:
Dr. David Silver, the Warlock of Wellsville, and Erastus Eels, the first undertaker of Columbiana County who hails from Lisbon!

Jake The Night Watchman

Christina Sloan, the Hanoverton Witch

We will be in two parades so far.  The Grand Parade in Salem on August 13 and the Johnny Appleseed Parade on Sept 17.
We are also doing a tour of Gretchen's Lock Legends June 23 which will feature all the ghosts of Gretchen's Lock and where you can find them.  It will start at 7pm/.

Sadie Barcus, the Witch of Salineville
 We are working hard to bring you the history of Columbiana County in a fun way.  WE are looking for donations of Costumes. We need suspenders, vests, boots, and period dresses for our ladies.  If you have any ideas or can help in any way, please email me with details!  We pay for this out of our own pockets.  We are having a fundraiser with Chester Candles soon!  Please buy one from us!  We make a $4 profit for each candle we sell!  all proceeds go toward costumes and other things we need for our continued discovery of Columbiana County's Legends!
