Tours each night will lead you up the hill by lantern light to the old cemetery where costumed actors portray pioneers from Glenwood Springs’ past.
Meet some of the characters:
Board member Clara Miller is leading the event this year and has recruited new actors.
“We are looking good on ‘ghosts’ this year we encourage anyone who is interested to contact the museum,” Clara said.
