Join us for a Ghost Walk, and get introduced to the spirits and spine-tingling tales of ghostly happenings! Powhatan Historic State Park is home to a number of ghost stories, folktales, and legends. On this night, all five of our historic buildings will be completely open, with storytellers waiting to take you on a ride. Is the courthouse really haunted? What makes the rattling in the jail? These ghostly tales may very well be hauntingly true, or more likely just flights of fancy. But we’ll let you decide…
