Subject: BAMA Ghost Walk brings strange stories to light

It’s that time again!  Get ready to hear about ghoulies and ghosties that make their home in Belton as you stroll down the historic streets during the Belton Area Museum Association’s fifth annual Halloween Ghost Walk.

Six all-new historic properties are on the tour: Belton Light and Power Co. (current News Chronicle Office), Hanks’ Jewelry Store (214 City Square), and Brown Avenue residences including the Cunningham House, the Cox House, The Maynard/Clinkscales House, and the Drake House are all scheduled stops.  Exteriors of homes and businesses will be accessible and spine-tingling stories attached to each property will be shared by costumed presenters.

Led by Belton-Honea Path High School drama teacher Alysha Sudduth, the drama students will be acting out the tales.  Several actors who will be sharing their skills and talents are the following students:  Issie Daritey, Mattie Murdock, Luke Fuller, Bailey Fountain, Sunny Chapman, Bella Dunihue, Austin Hopkins, Kadie Overby, Mckenzie Scott, Phoebe Moh, Hope Lowery, Xander Cox, Chloe Sloan, Braeson Shores, Tobias Valentine, Jake Crenshaw, Andrew Phillips, Tiarra Kuntzman, Finn Smith, Ezra Rowe.

Price per person ($10 adults, $5 children 10 and under) includes guided tours of historic properties and unusual entertainment.  Snacks can be purchased at the depot as well before departing on tours.  Purchasing advanced tickets is encouraged as slots fill up quickly.  Price rises to $15 if purchased the day of the event.

Tours begin at 6 PM and will depart from the depot every 15 minutes until 8:15 PM. Each tour will last approximately 1 1/2 hours. Limited slots are available. Tours will be family-friendly in content.

This year’s tour guides include Ella Ashley, Alyssa Williams, Sangria Smith, Tatyana Fountain, Kris Kimbrell, Christian Greer, Natalee Brown, Thomas Wright, Jared Edmonds, Jaylen Hughes, and Skylar Buchannan.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased by visiting or calling the museum during regular opening hours, Wednesday–Friday, 9 – 2 and Saturday 10 – noon.
