Have I ever told y’all that I take people on haunted tours of Denton? I’m kidding, of course —I’ve told you a jillion times. With the Halloween season upon us, I wanted to publish a schedule so that people can mark their calendars (scroll down if you don’t want to read the yadayada). In truth, some people are making reservations ahead of time or booking private tours. I might have to run several tours each night! Oh, darn.
[Note: My business is now called Ghosts of Denton, and you can visit the website to make on-line reservations for a tour. Reservations ARE required.]
Recently, we were fortunate enough to get some press in the Denton Record Chronicle with an excellent article by Cindy Breeding (thank you Cindy). Local photographer Ed Steele was on hand to get a visual record of the tour. He usually photographs local bands, and I’m lucky that he was the photographer we got. All of the pictures on this post are his handiwork, and if you want to find out more about his work (and you do, because he won’t photograph your extra chins!) go to his website at Ed Steele Photography.com.
So, what is this tour? It’s a walking tour (approximately 90 minutes long) of the courthouse square exploring the the history and mystery of Denton. You won’t ever look at the town the same way again! I’ll tell you the reports of local spirits that linger behind the walls of the buildings, and give you some history so we can try to figure out why they might be hanging around! Personally, I think that those ghosts are like the college students who come here and never want to leave. Denton is a pretty cool little town and has a vibrant nightlife. Maybe the ghosts just like the scene?
Are you wondering where it meets and how much it costs? It’s $10 per person (I don’t recommend it for kids under 10, more because of the attention span than any horror stories we might tell). We meet at Jupiter House Coffee on the east side of the square. I usually sit inside where it is comfortable, because I’m a little old lady, and that’s what I do.
Keep in mind that I would love you to arrive a few minutes before showtime so that we can take care of the business and begin on time. (And watch the Facebook page in case of stormy weather to make sure we don’t have to cancel! It is Texas, after all)). You might also see more information, special offers, and updates. Special group tours are available on request. [Note: As for that schedule… I took it down, because this is an older post!]
Come on down and join me for a night of spooky tales!
