Ghost Stories program, George M. Murrell Home
October 27–October 28
For the 25th consecutive year, the George M. Murrell Home in Park Hill will be the backdrop for storytellers spinning yarns about the “Hunter’s Ghost” and other chilling accounts. The event will be held on Friday, October 27, and Saturday, October 28.
Ghost stories related to the 1845 plantation mansion are documented as early as the 1930s. One story, the “Hunter’s Ghost,” is the legend that grew out of the years George Murrell operated the mansion before the Civil War. He often hosted fox hunts in the Cherokee Nation. This and other tales related to the historic home will be recounted by storytellers in period costume.
Sessions will begin every 15 minutes beginning at 6:30 pm. The last session will begin at 8:15 pm. Visitors will move through the house and listen to stories from several unique storytellers. Guests will also have a chance to sample some hot cider and cookies in the Murrell Mercantile Store.
Tickets are $6 per person; reservations are required due to limited seating. Visa, MasterCard, and Discover are accepted. The event is not recommended for children under 8 years of age. For reservations call 918-456-2751.
