Special to The Leader

Heritage House Museum in downtown Orange will have a Historic Ghost Walk fundraiser Saturday, October 29, from 5:30 to 8 p.m.

Groups will leave from the museum, 905 W. Division, west of the courthouse, and walk to four different sites. Storytellers at the sites will talk about local history, including infamous shootings, a horrible accident and a Victorian Age scandal.

The price will be $5 for adults and $2 for children. Families will pay $10. Refreshments will be served. The groups will leave throughout the time frames. Attendees should wear comfortable shoes and be able to walk about a mile. Benches are along the area for resting, if needed.

Money raised will go to the non-profit museum that preserves Orange County History. Leslie Williams, daughter of the late historians Dr. Howard and Elizabeth Williams, is president of the museum board of directors. For more information, contact the museum at 409-886-5385.
