Another Evening of Scary Tales is History

First Evening of the 2011 "Scary Stories and Twilight Tours" A Hit

The Ghost Teller (aka Marilyn A. Hudson) Teresa Black,
Lisa the Museum Director, and unnamed volunteer

The first evening of the night benefit event at the 'storied' Overholser Mansion was on a rainy evening setting just the right mood.  Joining the Museum staff were two community volunteers, one a storyteller and singer Teresa Black, in period costume.  This year for the first time many years the storyteller returned to the third floor ballroom.  As they say, a good time was had by all.
