For nearly 200 years, the tiny borough of Girard, Pennsylvania has remained relatively unchanged in size and appearance, its Main Street still lined with many of the original structures built by early settlers in the 1840s. But beneath Girard’s quiet, quaint exterior lies a hotbed of paranormal activity, with the spirits of long-dead citizens still making appearances in our current century.
Join us this summer as this year’s ghost walks will focus exclusively on the spirits that inhabit this charming town. As we explore Girard’s hauntings, we will also learn its remarkable history, including stories of the incredible deeds of a secret network of law-breakers who harbored fugitive slaves as they made their way to Canada on the Underground Railroad.
