Elizabeth City Historic Ghost Walk

Friday, October 11, 2019 - Saturday, October 12, 2019
5:30 PM - 9:30 PM

The award-winning Elizabeth City Historic Ghost Walk 2019 is a family-friendly, fun and creative way to watch our local history come alive.  No need to fear, our ghostly apparitions only wish to entertain as they spin their tales.

Ghost Walk invites you to enter seven different historic homes where you’ll meet a friendly apparition who will draw you into the tale of their life and time in Elizabeth City during bygone days. Upon bidding adieu to your ghostly host, enjoy a leisurely walk from site to site or take advantage of complimentary trolleys.
