Historic Ghost Tour - In 1771, Enoch Pugh swung from the gallows in Hillsborough, and he has been hanging around (well, buried close by) ever since. Join Enoch for a 2 hour, 1.5-mile walk around downtown Hillsborough. At a dozen stops along the way ~ including haunted houses and the execution site ~ Enoch will describe real history, native and post-colonial legends, and numerous "haints" reported in homes or in the area. You will hear about...Old Poplar, a house with only a dozen or so varied spirits. Spirits ofSeven Hearths, and the possible identities of both. A perfumed lady spirit in the Roulhac Hamilton house. And the Declaration signer who is buried here, and elsewhere. Enoch also tells about his pre-Revolution exploits, gruesome death,  and mysteries about him that have recently been solved,  and others that have not....Join us for tales of history, mystery, murder, and imagination! You may also choose from two other tour options: "Haints" Misbehaving Tour - This focuses only on local ghost tales and legends, with no Colonial Hillsborough history. Just Regulators Tour - This day-time tour focuses only on Colonial Hillsborough history ~ no ghosts! Consult website for Times.
