We served as guides on Friday night's Haunted History Tour through downtown Kennett, and I can only hope that the tourgoers had as much fun as we did.
Starting off at the corner of State and Union Streets, we encountered the ghosts of Sandy Flash, Esther Hayes, William Chalfant, Mary Pennock, William H. Worrall (with an antique coffin), Letitia Aubrey, Esther Pennock, Marie Shortlidge, and the Rev. John Scott Gilmore. The actors all "got into" their roles as they shared their strange stories.
After the tour Lynn Sinclair, who wrote the script and recruited the actors and guides, offered cider and cookies at her Sunrise Cafe.
The turnout was terrific -- Union and Broad Streets were full of tour groups -- and despite the ominous skies (appropriate for the mood). we had only a little bit of rain.
I have to thank a friend of mine, an off-duty Kennett Square police officer, who spotted my large group trying to cross at the corner of Linden and Broad Streets. He stopped his truck and let us cross in front of him.
