      18TH ANNUAL SPIRIT WALK - Friday, October 19th

       

      Commune with the shades of an earlier age.... 

       

      This year, the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society will honor Charlottesville's 250th Anniversary with a special Celebrate 250 edition of the Spirit Walk.  Due to the popularity of last year's event, ACHS  is pleased to announce that the 2012 Spirit Walk will, again, feature two exciting tours!   Tours will depart in two different directions- choose one or choose both.  The Cemetery Tour will keep visitors inside Maplewood Cemetery as they meet and greet a number of Charlottesville's past residents.  The Court Square tour will lead visitors through historic downtown Charlottesville, beginning at Court Square and ending at Old Jail #5.  Each tour lasts approximately one hour.  

       

      The fundraiser supports the work of the Society, and features  a cast of local actors and musicians recounting the city's history from the early eighteenth century to the mid-twentieth century.  This year, tour participants will be treated to several new characters, as well as having a chance to reconnect with some of their past favorites.

       

      Performances leave every 15 minutes from the location indated for your tour.  For Cemetery Tours, please meet at Maplewood Cemetery at the Maple Street entrance.  For Court Square Tours, please meet at the corner of Sixth Street, NE & Jefferson Street (in Court Square).

      Discounts are available for ACHS members or large groups.  These discounts are only available for online and advance sales.  Members recieve a 15% discount using the code you recieved via email.  If you have questions, please email Margaret at admin@albemarlehistory.org.  Please call 434-296-1492 to make reservations for large groups.

      Please note:  If you plan to purchase tickets for both the Cemetery and Court Square Tours, please be sure to select a start time for your second tour that is 1.5 hours after the first.  This will ensure that you have time ample to finish the first tour and move to the second location.
