Come visit the graves of those with stories to tell.

Your host is Kathleen Maca, the author of “Galveston’s Broadway Cemeteries,” “Ghosts of Galveston” and “Ghostly Tales from Galveston.” A local historian and writer, she has spent over 45 years researching historic cemeteries.

Come in costume or as you are – it will also be a great opportunity to take some photos to post for Halloween.

    Will be in Galveston on Oct 27. Was trying to see if it’s possible to do a cemetery tour. There’s only two of us. If not we will try and do something soon. Thanks

      No, Heather, I’m sorry I have other engagements on that date. I do have a late cemetery tour on the 15th. Are you only in town on Saturday?

    Thank you

    Do you have any cemetery tours in November, like the 8th through the 12th or the 22nd through the end of November?

      Hi, Vicki

      I’m happy to open up a tour for Wednesday, Oct. 27 if that works for you. Are you interested in an “after dark” version or daylight only? After dark would begin at either 6 or 6:30. Let me know which you prefer – since you’ll be the first to sign up for it you can choose. I’ll send you the link for registration as soon as you decide.
