Post 1753 - Wolfville Ghost Walk

I'm seldom in the Valley on a Thursday night, so when I was this evening, I had to go on the Wolfville Ghost Walk.

I think it's the best 12 bucks I've spent in a long time.

We met at the Wolfville town clock around 8:15. I forked over my cash. I made sure my camera was at the ready.

Jeremy led us through the main cemetery in Wolfville, regaling us with tales of some of the folks buried there. I learned a lot about my second favourite NS town (Port Williams is #1 of course). I saw and took pictures of some of those graves.

Jeremy had some friends. "Evangeline" told us about the Expulsion and Gabriel. "Isaac Chipman" spoke of some interesting Acadia University stories.

We made our way up town to Linden Avenue. Another actor told some tales in front of the house where her character had lived. Another spoke about Seminary House and its ghosts. A woman told us of a forerunner.

We ended up at a the Willowbank Cemetery. Jeremy spoke of George Lawrence Price, the last known Ally killed during World War One; I knew his nephew very well, by the way. A future edition of The Early Bevboy will be about him.

The final scene was at the grave of Mona Parsons, and Patricia will be so jealous of me as she reveres her.

My God, I enjoyed this evening's jaunt. I highly recommend it. The next ghost walk is on September 29th at 8:30. Go. Just go.

If I get a chance, I will post some pictures of this excursion here tomorrow.

See you tomorrow.
