The 17th annual Gallatin Ghost Walk begins Friday, Oct. 8 and runs Friday and Saturday evenings through Saturday, Nov. 6.

A local autumn tradition, this is a family-friendly event is where presenters dress in authentic period attire. This year features the assistance of historian, Civil War reenactor and former Rosemont site director Eli Geery.

Gallatin Ghost Walks are less about scaring its participants and more about teaching the local history through Sumner County’s past hauntings, paranormal events and random mysterious occurrences.
