Historic Ghostwalks presented by the Onondaga Historical Association are led by guides to locations in neighborhoods, buildings, and cemeteries where actors in costume portray individuals from Onondaga County’s past. The “ghosts” reveal their lives in 12 to 15 minute vignettes, giving personal insight to those who have preceded us. Reservations are $15 for the general public and $12 for members (call 315-428-1864 for the member discount code).
Where and When:
Each summer, tours are held at Oakwood Cemetery and include new characters and routes around the cemetery.
Each fall, dive into local neighborhoods with OHA as we explore various towns across Onondaga County. The 2019 Fall Ghostwalk took place in the Berkeley Park Neighborhood in honor of Edward Smith K-8 School’s centennial.
