Visitors are encouraged to arrive between 6:30 and 6:50, purchase their tickets and get a group assignment. All groups start at the same time. Late comers will be added to groups that have already started. Tickets are $10. Children 14 and under are free.
The adventure will take over an hour as each group treks from floor to floor to hear every story. Interpreters assuming the persona of various Marshall County residents circa 1882 – 1950 will tell their stories revealing the development of our community. These stories will be told through the characters of businessman W. W. Hill (Kurt Garner), Culver Military Instructor Robert Rossow (Jeff Kenney), and Plymouth mother Josie Drake (Teressa Welborn).
With your group, discover secret stairs and hidden passageways of the museum. Come and hear the chilling stories of those who died too soon. From mill worker Tillman Wagoner (Sam Erwin) to nurse Treva Swihart (Liz Garza) we will hear the tragic accounts of lives cut short by unnatural causes. Other characters include Charles Thomas (Dennis Bottorff), Mary Simons (Sue Irwin), Joshua Bunch (Hugh Rettinger), Ed Keck (Tom Pedavoli), and Martha Boggs (Brenda Anderson).
Tickets may be purchased at the Museum at 123 N. Michigan St., Plymouth in advance or the night of the Ghost Walk. Come explore the dark corners of the museum with friends. For more information, call 574-936-2306, or visit their Facebook page, Marshall County Museum Historic Crossroads Center.
