LUSK LOCK HAS IT'S OWN GHOSTLY TALES

Our tour at Lusk Lock yesterday was great.  Lusk Lock is not widely hunted for ghosts, but it does have them.  There have been reports of people seeing a man dressed in mostly black, with a black hat and boots, always around the creek area. Sometimes he is washing his hands in the creek, while others, he is standing in the woods, near the lock. 
There is also supposed to be a little three year old girl entombed in the lock.  Her name is Margaret Lusk.  In the picture above, Sarah and Melissa are waking up the stairs in the back of the lock to check out the alleged site of her burial.  
There were many deaths associated with the locks.  Some men died during the construction from malaria and other diseases, while others suffered Copperhead snake bites and dies from them.  It does not surprise me that there are ghosts all along Beaver Creek.

The Salem Ghost Trolley Tours Were Great

 
We had a great time this past Saturday doing the Salem Ghost Trolley Tours. We had lots of adventures, from watching the lights on the old Prospect School, to encountering a group of people out at Cry Baby Bridge while we were doing our tour.  The bus does not maneuver on a dime and we learned there are just some places we will not be able to visit with it.  We also learned our bus driver, Nancy, was an awesome driver! 
My crew for the night was David, Tracy, and Amanda.  They all did a great job and I look forward to working with them again. 
Our next tour is October 26.  It will be different also, because we have to change a few things on the new tour to accommodate the bus.
