Hannibal Historical Society will be hosting a ghost walk at Hannibal Village Cemetery on Saturday, September 18, beginning at 11 a.m. Guides will take groups of approximately 20 people at 20 minute intervals to meet the “ghosts” of folks who have helped create the fabric of Hannibal’s history. Come and meet Mrs. John Bullen, mother of a pioneer, portrayed by Carol Newvine, and politician and businessman Walter C. Matteson, portrayed by Terry Wilbur. These two and others promise to provide an educational and entertaining experience.

For those who have difficulty walking or who cannot attend a cemetery performance, the ghosts will also be at God’s Vision Christian Church in Hannibal on Friday, September 17 at 7 p.m.

The suggested donation for the event is $5. To reserve a specific time for the walk, contact Carol and Lowell Newvine at 564-5650 or stop in between 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. and wait for the next available group.
