I think this was different than yours, but I went on a ghost tour in Charleston. As we walked through the city, a guide told us stories about local "ghosts" and some interesting information (like the term "saved by the bell" coming from people fearing being locked in crypts alive, so they put a hole in the wall with a string attached to a bell on the outside, so that if the person inside "came to" he or she could ring the bell to let everyone know). It was very interesting.

Way to be, Jkath! I know of many haunted places around here and I will be visiting them and taking many pictures!

This is my most favorite place to dine, just 20 minutes from here:

Too cool, Barb! I think it would be really fun! I'd like to go on a tour around here if I can find one.

That looks like quite a place, dc!!
Out here, things are considered "old" if they were built before 1940. Noooooo old buildings here, except the California Missions, and they're kind of boring.

damp i've never done anything like that but i've been wanting to for several years.
i'd definately go to the franklin castle, and if i could squire's castle. only thing is squire's is in the metroparks and you can't go there after dusk. i was wanting to hang around there all night lol

Nothing would induce me to go on one of those but they do have a number of them in Sydney- the old quarrantine station being a really popular one. You can go on one at Port Arthur which used to be a penal colony in Tasmania.
