FCHS to offer Haunting History Tours


The Fulton County Historical Society is again offering the popular Haunting History Tours on Oct. 23, 24 and 31. Walking tours in groups of 8-10 will leave the Wauseon Depot every 15 minutes, beginning at 6:30 p.m. each night – rain or shine. Tours will last about one hour, and will feature historical storytellers.

There are over 23 spirits documented within the Fulton County Museum and Train Depot in Wauseon, not to mention those in the neighborhood. The museum is housed in an 1868 Romanesque Revival two-story brick building and was originally Wauseon’s first high school, and then became the county’s first hospital.

Reservations for this event are required. All ages are welcome with a cost of $10 for adults non-members and $8 for members and children. The last two tours each night are reserved for ages 18 and older.

If payment is not received by or during the two weeks prior, that time slot will be re-opened to others. No refunds will be issued unless the event is cancelled. Call or e-mail to make a reservation and send a check or make web-payment afterwards.

The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $4 for adults, $3 for seniors, $2 for students, members are free. For more information, contact the Historical Society at www.fultoncountyhs.org/ or call 419-337-7922.
