Sumner County Museum to Host Ghost Hunt, Walking Tour

Historical items and displays may fill the Sumner County Museum, but a group of paranormal investigators hope to find out if the building is home to something more.

Tickets are now on sale for a two-hour ghost hunt, which will take place at the museum on Sunday, May 30 at 7 p.m. It will then be followed by a one-hour walking tour of downtown Gallatin focusing on the area’s history and alleged hauntings.

The event is being organized by Allen Sircy, author of Southern Ghost Stories: Ghosts of Gallatin, to help raise money for the museum which experienced closures and event cancellations last year due to the pandemic.

Tickets are $30 and can be purchased online here. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the museum.

The museum is open Wednesday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Admission is currently free thanks to monthly sponsorships from local organizations and businesses with April and May being sponsored by the Sumner County Anti-Drug Coalition.
