Event description

Description

Clop, clop, clop, clop, clop.

A horse-drawn carriage clamors over the brick-paved road beneath your feet; the vibration reverberates through your bones; the wind softly lifting your hair as it disappears into the darkness.

Pale moonlight illuminates monstrous, beautiful mansions blanketed by a clear black sky. Still, each one as ominous a haunted house; with walls that echo stories of history, mystery and even tragedy.

The Riverside Historic District Tour will take you back in time to places like the Reitz family home with spirit appearances by Annie Fellows Johnston, Major Albert Rozencranz and more. This year's route features two new stories.

The walking tour will regale the district’s history, architecture, prominent residents and even ghost stories and spooky sightings.

Tour begins at the First Presbyterian Church and lasts approximately 1 hour. Family-friendly. Comfortable walking shoes, open-imaginations and handholding (if deemed necessary) is encouraged.
