ABOUT THIS PHOTO
On October 21, 1995, then Executive Director Lynne C. Ely, with the help of countless volunteers and Historical Society members, launched the first Spirit Walk event. Historic character reenactors — men, women and even children— led guests on sometimes spooky tours of Court Square and a nearby cemetery to explore little-known stories from the history of the region. The Spirit Walk was an annual event for many years here in downtown Charlottesville. We are planning to bring it back in 2021 and update what we offer. We are looking for volunteers to help us. To sign up to volunteer or if you want more information contact [email protected] or call (434) 296-1492.
