While walking through the beautiful old building, you are likely to come across some lovely hosts therein. The only problem? They have been dead for years! Whether you believe in ghosts or not, be prepared to come face to face with the past as you learn about Raleigh’s rich past history in this short, funny and scary walk. For kids of all ages.
