Those are just a few of the scary tales youll hear during the Central City Creepy Crawl, a lantern tour of Central City haunts hosted by the Gilpin County Historical Society. The tour, a reprise of a similar event that was discontinued ten years ago, will be offered today and October 24 beginning at 7 p.m.; sixty- to ninety-minute excursions will leave every five minutes or so until 7:30 from the corner of Lawrence and Main streets, in front of the Century Casino. Ten years was a long time ago, so theyre kind of reinventing it, with hopes of bringing it back again next year, notes spokeswoman Allison Johnson of the tour, which also relates the tale of the Columbine Lady who visits John Camerons grave in the Masonic Cemetery twice a year and other creepy chronicles.
