Ghost Walks and Cemetery Tours
GALVESTON STRAND GHOST WALK:
Right after Art Walk!
GALVESTON CEMETERY TOURS:
MURDER, MOVIE STARS, MILITARY & MORE
Come visit the graves of those with stories to tell. As seen on Texas Country Reporter, proves that truth can be stranger than fiction. Join us in wandering through one of Galveston’s oldest cemeteries this Halloween season to hear stories about colorful characters from Galveston’s past including murder victims, movie stars, military men and more.
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.
