Ghosts at the Museum of Coastal Carolina Oct. 17

Ghost Walk will be at the Museum of Coastal Carolina Oct. 17 at 6:00 pm to present “Ghosts of Brunswick County.” Presenters Will and Allison Smith note that “Brunswick County has 500 years of recorded history. With history comes great ghost stories.” You will learn about locally-sighted apparitions of German sailors, ladies of the manor, and Spanish Conquistadors in this family-friendly program. They will also discuss some spooky local haunts.

Will Smith is a retired USAF Lt. Col. and is currently a professor at BCC. He majored in history during his undergraduate work at The Citadel. He and his wife, Allison, own and operate a seasonal ghost walk business in Ocean Isle Beach. They recently published a book titled The Dead Don’t Like to be Forgotten: Tales from the South Brunswick Islands. With Halloween right around the corner, it’s time to embrace your inner ghoul. If you’re in need of some spooktacular holiday inspiration, this presentation will get you into the spirit of Halloween faster than you can say BOO!

The Museum of Coastal Carolina is located at 21 East Second Street, Ocean Isle Beach, NC.  The museum is open on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10 to 3. Admission to the museum is free for members. Non-member all-day admission, which includes admission to the OIB Ghosts program on Oct. 17, is $9.50 for adults, $8.50 for seniors, $7.50 for children (3-12), and free for age 2 and under.
