When the festivities end, the fun has just begun. Guests are invited to join docents for the Haunted Tours of Stanardsville where our past comes to life. Enjoy learning about some of our more famous (or infamous) residents including the Ghost of Miss Cleveland, the Knights and the Sheriff's Son turned murderer and many others as you walk along the path taken by the Knights of the Golden Horseshoe. Guests are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes, layered clothing and bring a flashlight if they desire. These tours are recommended for ages 13+ as some of our past is a bit violent and may be too scary for younger audience members.
