LINCOLN PARK — COVID-19 is not stopping Lincoln Park Preservation Alliance from holding its annual Ghost Walk Oct. 17. Changes for this year’s Ghost Walk, now in its 13th year, include online reservations as well as requirements of masks and social distancing.
The five tours — with start times ranging from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. — will be limited to 10 people per tour, making social distancing more attainable, LPPA President and Founder Leslie Lynch-Wilson said.
Admission is $8 for adults and $2 for children. Reservations can be made at www.eventbrite.com/myevent?eid=121871931227. Treats and hot cider will be available.
Participants at the 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 1850s 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.
The Lincoln Park Preservation Alliance is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the preservation and protection of Lincoln Park’s historic resources, working to protect Lincoln Park’s historic sites through education, advocacy, research, tours, workshops, and lectures.
