University of Alabama Ghost Tour Promises Spooky Fun
Halloween isn’t Halloween without a little spooky fun and a ghost tale or two, both of which can be found exploring The University of Alabama’s campus at night.
The community is invited to experience some of the haunted legends that have been passed down through time during the fourth annual Haunting at the Museum from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 28.
Sponsored by UA’s Alabama Museum of Natural History, the free event is open to all ages and features guided, candlelit ghost walks around the Quad, followed by children’s activities and a scavenger hunt and at the museum.
“Everyone loves a good ghost story, especially if it’s about the University,” said Todd Hester, museum naturalist and tour guide. “Anything associated with ghosts and campus near Halloween always brings out the curiosity in all of us.”
The tour includes several stops, and the corresponding stories, for Morgan Hall, the library, Gorgas House and more.
The only cost to the tour is “your time and, perhaps, your fear of the unexplained,” Hester said.
UA’s Alabama Museum of Natural History is in Smith Hall near the Quad at the corner of Sixth Avenue and Capstone Drive on The University of Alabama campus.
