Wagon tours take you by haunted sites in Decatur

Learn the history, ghost stories and strange happenings connected with the locations

Thursday, October 3, 2013 - 12:01 am

They’re baaack: Haunted Decatur Wagon Tours return for the 2013 Callithumpian Festival in Decatur with improved tours and additional weekends.

The spooky-but-family-friendly horse-drawn wagon tours of Decatur-area haunts again will feature amateur Decatur historian Max Miller telling the history, ghost stories and strange happenings connected with locations along the tour, a news release said. Camelot Carriage Rides of Decatur will again provide the wagon and horses.

Hear about the night it rained frogs, the early 1900s “Mysterious Lady in Black,” tales of the “Horror Corridor” of five haunted homes in a one-block area, the ghost at a well-known Decatur restaurant and many other stories.

The approximately one-hour rides begin and end at the courthouse square in downtown Decatur.

Tours will be offered each Friday and Saturday in October at 5:45, 7, 8:15 and 9:30 p.m.

Tickets are $10 per seat and are limited to 14 people per ride. They are available at Ritter’s Flowers and Gifts, 937 N. 2nd St. in Decatur, and can be reserved in advance for 24 hours by calling 1-260-724-8406. Unsold tickets will be available at the courthouse the night of the tours.
