Spirit of a Ghostly Child
Seventh Annual

Georgetown, one of the oldest and most colorful neighborhoods in Seattle, has a thriving historical society. Each year, Friends of Georgetown History offers a nighttime walking tour through the back alleys and darkened streets of the community. Highlights include ghosts of former residents, accident victims and the occasional Odd Fellow. During the tour, one is introduced to the Comet Lodge Cemetery,  Georgetown Castle (reported to be the most haunted site in Seattle) and the old County Hospital (where the deceased were buried on the grounds or tossed in the nearby Duwamish River).

Volunteers from the community channel the spirits of early Georgetown residents. This tour is a Halloween treat and scarefest all rolled into one.
