Oak Hill to Celebrate the Spooky Season with Its Annual Haunted History Tours

From the origins of the Green Lady ghost to the eerie, Appalachian folklore of the Southern Highlanders who inhabited the area in the late 19th century, Oak Hill’s Haunted History Tours will take guests through Berry College’s main and mountain campuses to uncover the truth of Berry’s haunted past.

Public tours will be on Sundays, Oct. 24 and 31. There are four tours each night at 4 p.m., 6 p.m., 8 p.m., and 10 p.m. lasting an hour and a half and are limited to 15 people. Tickets cost $10 for adults and $5 for students. Tours are recommended for ages 10 and older.

Guests will meet Oak Hill staff at the parking lot next to the Memorial College Chapel, located on Berry’s main campus. The experience is a guided walking tour along uneven pathways and through wooded trails. To participate in the entire tour, guests will drive their own vehicles between sites. Oak Hill recommends that guests dress warm, wear comfortable shoes, and bring a flashlight.
