I remember your group and am glad you liked your tour. Keep in touch… We’re looking for an indoor location to do actual ghost hunts during the cold months.

You toured on an especially good night. And your nephew was a delight to have along! Not only was he totally immersed in the event, he shared some good information of his own.
