Read the unusual epitaphs while listening to spirited stories.
We will even share tales of a local haunted inn, lighthouse and ghost ship.
You’ll be talking about this tour for quite some time afterwards. Some guests have called the setting like something out of a Stephen King Movie, while others say that they were awake all night after the tour.
Please note that the village is quiet at night and even the trees in it have stories to tell.
