    As the lazy, hazy days of summer yield to cool crisp autumn nights, we look ahead to this time of year when we can embrace all that's scary and creepy. Showcaseing Lewiston's rough and tumble frontier past as well as its gloriously ghost-filled present.  Lurking behind Lewiston's cheerful disposition lies an impressive past of creepy events, restless spirits and haunted buildings. The walks are a great way to introduce visitors, school children and even long time residents to Lewiston's rich and exciting history.

    The 1 1/2 hour walk will take you through Lewiston's Historic District as the Marble Orchard Players share ghost stories, myths and tales of tragedy, crime, mayhem and murder, the grim and ghastly deeds of Lewiston's best...and worse. Along the way, you'll meet these spirits IN PERSON and hear their tales as you walk back in time ending up in the Village Cemetery.

    Rain or shine. No reservations are necessary. And oh yes, be sure to bring a flash light. It gets dark early in the grave yard......

    Admission:

    • $15/Adults
    • $5 kids (under 12)
    • $10 LCA Members
