Virginia Tech Historic Preservation Society to host haunted tour of Radford this evening


Have you ever wondered what secrets, hauntings and local legends are swirling around us?  Join the Virginia Tech Historic Preservation Society for Myths, Mysteries, and Spirits: A Haunted Tour of Radford to hear the inside stories of what may be lurking in Radford’s darkest shadows. There will be three Haunted Tours this evening, Oct. 26, at 5:15 p.m., 6:15 p.m. and 7:15 p.m.

Guests will  meet at Glencoe Mansion at 600 Unruh Dr. where they will get into the “spirit” of things with a creepy look into Victorian funeral customs, fears and superstitions. Guests will then join Mistress May Hem on the “Ghoul Bus” to explore the local legends surrounding some of Radford’s most storied sites.

The experience concludes with a visit to the opulent and eerie Ingles Castle where a spooky cast of characters will guide individuals through the home. At the castle, guests will meet face to face with the infamous “Lady in the Mirror.”

Each tour lasts one hour and 30 minutes. Tickets are required and space is limited, so act now to secure your spot. Tickets for adults are $15, and children 16 and under can participate for $10.
