As the air begins to cool and the trees shed their leaves, the spirits of former citizens of Charlottesville and Albemarle County gather one last time before consigning themselves to the earth for the long, cold winter. Join the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society on its 23rd Annual Spirit Walk to meet these memorable residents from our community's past. Come learn their stories as they are vividly brought to life before you.
