Join us for Ghost Walks every Saturday in October!

Historic Dumfries Virginia, Inc. will be offering Ghost Walks on Saturday evenings in October. Participants will hear spooky tales of ghostly occurences during the outdoor walking tour of haunted locations near the Weems-Botts Museum. Ghost Walks will begin every half hour from 7:00pm-8:30pm and last 30-45 minutes. Concessions, including hot cocoa and cider, will be available for purchase (cash only). Tickets are $10 per adult and $8 per youth/senior. Advance tickets are highly recommended as space is limited. Walk-ins will be accepted as space allows.

Ghost Walks will start at the Weem-Botts Museum Annex located at 3944 Cameron Street, Dumfries, Virginia. For more information, please call (703) 221-2218. To pre-order tickets, visit our Eventbrite page.
