LINCOLN PARK — Participants at the Oct. 19 Ghost Walk will hear haunting stories and history about the early days of Lincoln Park. Ghost stories associated with the buildings and homes along Fort Park Boulevard from Southfield to Garfield will be told.
This section of Lincoln Park dates to the 1850’s when Cleophus Goodell purchased 120 acres from the Native Americans. Along this section of Fort Park lived Lincoln Park’s founding families of the Cleophus Goodell family and the Herman Quandt family.
