Back again this year by popular demand, the Shoal Creek Conservancy will host Ghosts of Shoal Creek: a free Halloween-themed tour of Shoal Creek tracing the ghosts of Austin’s past on Saturday, October 31 from 9-10:30 a.m.
Led by Ted Lee Eubanks, this walk will begin at the South Entrance of Pease Park. From there, participants will walk over to House Park and meet the first ghost, Col. Edwin M. House. After spending time at House Park, you will walk a short distance to Duncan Park and discuss the Servant Girl Annihilator, the second ghost. From there the tour will return to San Gabriel to the Neill-Cochran House, and meet George Armstrong Custer and his wife Libby. The walk will finish at Custer's Meadow in Pease Park, and also discuss the Seider's Springs Massacre.
Costumes are encouraged! Click here to RSVP.
