Capital District Council for the Social Studies (Albany, NY)
Hear the historic downtown ghost tour…but with local actors appearing as the spirits.
Roam the streets of Albany's past with Madam Maeve, your guide into the ghostly history that lurks in the nooks and crannies of the Capital Region. Together, we’ll cross the veil in search of historic Albany specters like Legs Diamond and his flamboyant paramour Kiki Roberts or the cursed couple who shared Lincoln's ill-fated theatre box - Henry and Clara Rathbone. We may even encounter other nameless specters, who have been known to appear without introduction.
Join the REP and Discover Albany’s Maeve McEneny-Johnson, as they walk the streets of Albany after dark in an attempt to unearth the capital city's storied past. Who is that ghostly figure lingering past closing time at Olde English Pub? Do you know the story of the scallywags that made the Kenmore Ballroom their living haunt? Will Medium Maeve be able to conjure the spirits along the way? Walk with us as we unearth these ghosts and more - if you DARE!
