Nancy Drew Sleuths members will be going on a ghost tour during our Nancy Drew convention in Charlottesville, VA. It starts out in the downtown Charlottesville area and is described as:
You don’t have to believe in ghosts to enjoy this walking tour. Hear about reported ghost sightings. Walk in the fatal footsteps of Sam McCue, Charlottesville’s former mayor and prominent lawyer, and his wife, Fannie. Hear the witness testimonies. See where it all happened. Decide for yourself who is guilty of this famous 1904 murder.
The tour is a gentle two-hour stroll and covers approximately 1 mile over mostly flat terrain. We alternate walking and talking with lots of sit-down opportunities. It is completely wheel chair and stroller accessible.
To read up more on Sam McCue and his wife Fannie, here's a piece written in the local Charlottesville weekly, The Hook, about the murders. Or save the story for the tour and read it when you return...
We are looking forward to this evening of mystery and hauntings!
