The Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society hosts their 16th Annual Spirit Walk. It's a ghoulish guided evening tour of historic Charlottesville where "spirits" from the city's past come to life. With a cast of around 50 local actors and musicians, the tour includes popular haunts such as the County Courthouse, Maplewood Cemetery, and the old County Jail. Proceeds from the Spirit Walk support the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society, a non-profit organization that works to preserve and promote the rich legacy of local history. At the close of the tour, enjoy hot apple cider and donuts from Carpe Donut. Tours leave every 15 minutes from Maplewood Cemetery on the corner of Maple and 8th St. NE. Reservations are required and can be made online or by calling 296-1492.
