Ghost Talk scheduled for Marianna on October 23rd


Ghost of Bellamy Bridge
If you are interested in combining some real history with a bit of a folklore chill, while helping disabled veterans in the process, I will be the guest speaker for an interactive telling of ghost stories in Marianna on Saturday evening, October 23rd.

The stories will include the true story of the Ghost of Bellamy Bridge, a famed Jackson County ghost story; the tale of the lost soldier from the Battle of Marianna who is said to still haunt the scene of his death; the story of the ghost of Byrd Cemetery; the legend of the headless Creek chief who haunts the upper Apalachicola River; stories of ghosts and a strange bigfoot like creature from the Two Egg area and the fascinating legend of Two-Toed Tom, the notorious red-eyed, demon-possessed, 24-foot long alligator monster of Northwest Florida and South Alabama.

The evening will feature a storytelling, a short walk or two and the chance to see a supposedly haunted place up close and personal.

To reserve space in advance, please email by visiting www.exploresouthernhistory.com/ContactUs.  The event will begin at 5 p.m. on October 23rd at the Marianna High School Parking Lot on Caverns Road in Marianna. The cost is $5 for adults, $3 for teens and $1 for children.  100% of the money will go to the Blue Springs Chapter of the Children of the American Revolution, which will use the funds to support Paws for Patriots, a program that provides guide dogs for blind veterans.
