Wilksboro
Join us in Wilkesboro for the Candlelight Ghost Tour. Walk amidst the history of a proud mountain people as we regale you with stories of the past - well, maybe some folks aren't as "past" as we'd think. You might just hear the footsteps of the long dead Tom Dooley in the jail cell he once occupied or spy the earthbound spirit of the little girl killed by runaway horses.
