(ROCKWALL, TX – Sept. 18, 2019) Following a sold-out Harvest Moon Walking Tour this past Friday the 13th, history buff and longtime Rockwall resident Gina Pickett looks forward to leading more Rockwall Ghost Walks (also known as the Rockwall Legends Walk) beginning Saturday, Oct. 5.

Blue Ribbon News ventured out on a summer ghost walk with Gina and another couple this past July.  We enjoyed dinner in downtown Rockwall, then met our host at the benches in front of the courthouse where we embarked upon an hour-long tour.  We stopped at Coffin Alley, the Hall Building, and various other landmarks as we listened to tales of intrigue, mystery, and murder.

Gina explains that her tour focuses mainly on the history of the downtown square.

“Rockwall Ghost Walk is a walking tour around the square which focuses on local history with a creepy twist. History doesn’t change, but the interpretation of it certainly does,” Gina said. “Overall, the Ghost Walk is a way to have some fun while learning more about local history. Take some photos; you never know what you might pick up. See you there/see you scare!”

Tours begin at 8:30 p.m.  The cost is $12 per person, but discount codes can often be found on her facebook page, @rockwallghostwalk. For tickets and tour dates, visit rockwallghostwalk.com.
