Ghost Walk

October 23, 2013

10/24/13 The Marshall County Church Orchestra will provide Halloween and Ghostly music before the Ghost Walk at the Historic Crossroads Center of the Marshall County Museum from 6:30 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. Saturday night.   Doors for the Ghost Walk will open at 6:15.  Tickets are $5.  Children under the age of 5 are free.  The Ghost Walk starts at 7:00 P.M.

Interpreters will assume the persona of various Marshall County residents circa 1880 – 1930 and tell tales of how they influenced the development of a community.  These stories will be told through the characters of newspaper editor Clay Metsker (Mike Bergman), benefactress Magdalena Hoham Klinghammer (Anna Liechty), and Civil War veteran John Ames (Jerry Eby).

Come and hear the haunting stories of those who died too soon.  From little Emma Lilly (Madeline Petrucelli) to great-grandmother Frances Sweet (Anita Kopetski) we will hear the accounts of their unnatural demises.  Other characters include Peter Ulrich (Hugh Rettinger), Leroy Trowbridge (Mark Senter), James Galentine (Sam Erwin), Jennie Stoneburner (Amanda Petrucelli), and Jennie Furney (Marilyn Gochenour). 

To hear all the stories will take a little over an hour. Visitors are encouraged to start the tour between 7 and 7:30.

Tickets may be purchased at the Museum at 123 N. Michigan St., Plymouth or from any of the Trustees of the Marshall County Historical Society.  For more information, call (574) 936-2306, or visit our Facebook page- Marshall County Museum Historic Crossroads Center.
