Visit East Hill Cemetery to meet characters from Salem’s past and learn about our region’s history! All events are family-friendly, fun and informative, and not scary. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students of any age, and free for children three and younger. Proceeds benefit the Salem Museum & Historical Society. It’s the 19th year for the Ghost Walk at East Hill and East Hill North Cemeteries! On October 4-6, walking tours will leave the Salem Museum every fifteen minutes between 6 and 8 PM. The East Hill tour will introduce visitors to a number of new spirits this year. Meet dearly departed residents of the Williams-Brown House, the Fort Lewis Mansion, and the historic Water Street community, plus Salem’s Civil War mayor and a few of Salem’s brave WWI doughboys. Get the scoop on General Andrew Lewis! Tickets for the Ghost Walk in East Hill are limited and expected to sell out again this year. Good walking shoes are recommended: this is a walking tour of just over a half-mile. As the name “East Hill” implies, the route goes up and downhill, although the walk is not strenuous, and has a number of stops along the way. There are curbs crossing Main Street and a short stretch that is a gravel path. The Salem Museum is located at 801 E. Main St, Salem, VA. In case of rain, the event will be held at the Salem Museum. On October 11-13, Sherwood Memorial Park’s ghosts will tell their stories in the cemetery’s outdoor Amphitheater at 7 PM.
