What a beautiful place! "Alley" does not do it justice. It's a beautiful, private area, very picturesque and most importantly--shaded! It has a cool history to it as well--so enjoy that!

As the site made notorious for the number of duels that occurred here, it is often mentioned during ghost tours within the city! While I can't speak for the ghosts, I think it's a very lovely area and although we've been there numerous times, I can't say I've seen anything that has given me the shivers. Now the graveyard of the round church is different story!

Very shady and nice photo ops! Not sure the specific address but trip advisor marks it for you. Nice brick/cobblestone combination path. This area has a marker plaque half way through on the wall that says it was renovated in 2005.

Old, original, and you can feel like you are walking back through time to the beginning of the city's founding.

Spotted this just walking towards E Bay, never knew this existed. Loved getting to see this. It's a cozy little spot that is so cool.
