On Saturday May 5, 2018 the ghosts of former village residents, of the 19th and 20th centuries, will come alive during the Eden Mills Spirit Walk. This fundraiser for the Eden Mills Community Club’s ongoing energy-retrofit of the Community Hall, technical upgrades to its theatre space, and electrical and accessibility upgrades.
The day will feature THREE shows, starting at 1:30 pm, 2:30pm and 3:30 pm, for capacity audiences of 50 people per time-slot show. Beginning at the Hall where light refreshments with musical accompaniment will be available, the tours will begin with an introduction to the Indigenous history of Eden Mills accompanied by drumming courtesy of the Turtle Island Drumming Circle. As they move through the village, stopping at historic buildings and sites along York and Cedar Streets, tour group members will meet the spirits of Daniel Kribs, Adam Argo, Norman Marshall, Elizabeth and Henry Hortop, Sylvia (of Sylvia’s ice cream shop), butcher George Hampson, John and Rachel Ramsay and others. Each group will be led by a guide with a sweep following.
Tours are planned to be 1 hour in length. Prices will be set at $20 for adults and $5 for children under 12 years of age (must be accompanied by an adult). The event is rain or shine.
TICKETS – Must be purchased in advance, sorry no refunds. Capacity of 50 people per walk.
