Nothing was in the mirror.

Until, the person who tool the picture went home. looked at her pictures on the computer, &

So if you cannot make Ghost Tours... come on a daytime History Tour!

Yes... we have Ghosts! Friendly Ghosts, that is!

They usually make their presence known to people who are not looking for them:)

And.. sometimes they can make their presence known on regular daytime tours!

Will you be the lucky one to have a ghost find you?
