Comments from our guests:
"Great event. Keep it up!"
"We've attending 3-4 years before. Quality of script noticeably superior this year. Great job!"
We thank all the volunteers who made the Court Square Spirit Walk possible. We and the couple who went with us have already committed, we will attend next year. This year was our first. This was a very meaningful experience taking a walk through history. As a recent member of the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society, I continue to learn about the services they provide and the information they have available."
"The jail is awesomely spooky! Great tour!"
