Haunting the Bainbridge Ghost Walk
When I saw it listed in the online calendar of the visitors bureau, I didn’t realize the Bainbridge Ghost Walk had been postponed a week because of weather – but that made it possible for me to attend last night, November 9th.
Being a Bearcat (class of 1987) I’m happy to support the capital of Paint Valley, and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of performances, number of stories, and support of the town in providing sites.
And no – I did not live through the camera in my smart phone! (What an empty life.) These are just snapshots during performances or creative photos while walking or waiting, many of them utilizing the nighttime sensitivity of a digital camera.
(Btw, my research has shown that this is one of the three oldest buildings in Bainbridge, which were here before Nathaniel Massie platted the town in 1805 around them. But that’s another story.)
After returning to the Paxton for a description of Bainbridge’s worst fire in the 1890s – where Waverly sent a fire crew at about 60 miles an hour on the DT&I (by my math)…
Then cookies and hot chocolate to warm our chilled souls…
…And a serenade outside by a stranded traveller seeking a little spare change.
