In observance of Heritage Month, local genealogy researcher Robin Jacobson and Town of Friday Harbor historic preservation coordinator Sandy Strehlou are joining forces (safety in numbers?) for a walking tour of historic — and some believe haunted —sites in Friday Harbor, May 31.

Ghost stories not only permeate local lore and legend, they also lend added interest to historic buildings.

On this walk you will look through a window remembering a scandal in 1897, which makes that spot unworldly active today. You’ll hear about a little girl ghost, her little dog ghost and a visiting 19th century gentleman named Walter who has yet to check out of the guest room of his inn.

You’ll find out how we know the identity of the vanishing lady in the black duster. Perhaps you have a spooky story of your own to share. Bring it on.

No reservations required; tour begins at the intersection of Spring Street and Front Street, by Memorial Park, Friday, beginning at 7 p.m. Info: sstrehlou@fridayharbor.org or 378-2810.
