Back again this year by popular demand! Join the Shoal Creek Conservancy and speaker Ted Eubanks in a Halloween-themed tour of Shoal Creek tracing the ghosts of Austin’s past. This walk will begin at the South Entrance of Pease Park. From there, we will walk over to House Park and meet our first ghost, Col. Edwin M. House. The tour will continue on to Duncan Park where we will discuss our second ghost, the Servant Girl Annihilator. From there we will return to San Gabriel to the Neill-Cochran House to meet General George Armstrong Custer and his wife Libby. We will finish our walk in Pease District Park to discuss Custer’s Meadow and the Seider's Springs Massacre. Registration is free and costumes are encouraged!
