Tours return for another summer of terrifying tales

Ghost Tours of Vernon

The Greater Vernon Museum and Archives is pleased to announce that the Ghost Tours of Vernon are back for another spine-tingling summer of ghastly tales and haunted houses.

Running every Monday and Wednesday at 9 p.m., this walking/storytelling tour has been enjoyed by locals and tourists alike for the past seven years.

“It is hard to believe that this will be our eighth year of holding the tours,” says creator and host Mr. Gabriel David Sumegi Newman the 2nd.

Newman, a professional storyteller and performer, created the ghost tours as a way of combining the art of storytelling with local history.

“You come for the ghosts, which there are many of, but you leave with a new understanding and appreciation for the history of the region,” says Newman.

Tours leave at 9 p.m. from the steps of the Vernon Museum every Monday and Wednesday until Aug. 31. This outdoor walking tour runs rain or shine, so dress appropriately. Tickets are $10 for ages 12 and up, $5 for 12 and under (cash only). No reservations are necessary unless you want to book a private tour for 20 or more.
