We really enjoyed this Ghost Trek. Patti Starr is very knowledgeable and the stories were great. We had a ghostly encounter when one of the chandeliers went off when she was speaking. It was an entertaining evening.

Don't waste your time or money. Met in a parking lot, crossed the street and covered a total of maybe 50 yards. Heard a few stories and that was it.

Patty is a dynamo, very passionate about ghost hunting, has been former manager of talbot tavern and she knows and did research on the buildings. Fun, interesting, and I may have an orb in one picture.
