Have you ever wondered about the colorful, and perhaps haunted, history of downtown Greer? This fall the chance to familiarize yourself with the spirits of the city is here. Read on and put the Greer Station Ghost Walk on your calendar!
The Greer Station Ghost Walk
The Greer Station Ghost Walk benefits the Greer Heritage Museum. Guests will go on an eerie journey into Greer Station’s haunted past. As participants get in the Halloween spirit they will learn about the former and current “otherworldly” residents of the downtown area, including the most well-known tale about a hobo who was killed along the railroad tracks around the time of the Great Depression.
The walk will begin at the depot on Randall street for a ¼ mile walk down Trade street, heading towards the Greer Heritage museum on South Main. Each tour is 30-45 minutes long. The cost is $10 for adults, $5 for children aged 5-15, and kids under 4 are free. Tickets should be purchased online, in advance.
The tour ends with a visit to the Greer Heritage Museum, which is on the national register of Historic places. I encourage you to go in and see all the things on display from Greer’s history. There’s also a short film you can sit and watch.
Having enjoyed ghost tours in other southern towns, I’m especially excited about this because it’s practically in my back yard. But not so close that the ghosts will come visit me at home, I hope.
