October is here, ghost fans, and the cool Texas autumn brings with it even more DENTON HAUNTS!! “Shocktober” features two ghost tours sure to offer chills for every audience with NEW stories, MORE ghosts, and STRANGER secret history! At 7:30pm, the “Denton Haunted History“ tour explores the mystery, history, and spectres of local legends in a one-hour walking tour of the beautiful Courthouse Square with Doc T. For ghost hunters interested in stalking “Paranormal Scares on the Square,” American Masterpiece storyteller Shelly Tucker will guide you on an evening tour of Denton’s most haunted locations and hair-raising apparitions at 9pm. The tours include TRUE NEW stories, encounters, and haunting spaces in Denton County!
Tours meet at the courthouse gravesite of John B. Denton for 7:30 and 9pm, admission is $10 but not recommended for children under 12. Be sure to ‘like’ us on Facebook for schedule updates and special offers for our Sunday-thru-Saturday Week of HALLOWEEN Haunts [Oct 25-Nov 3 @7:30 & 9pm], or to book a group tour for 10 or more!
But the ghostly fun doesn’t end there! On Oct. 18 from 11a-2pm, Laura Douglas from the (haunted!) Emily Fowler Library will give a FREE virtual tour of “Haunted Denton” as part of the Denton County Office of History & Culture’s ‘lunch ‘n’ learn’ series at the Courthouse On The Square Museum.
