Halloween: Fort Langley has tales to tell

For those who like their chills with a historical edge, the Grave Tales historic walking tours are back in Fort Langley this month.

The tours are led by Fort Langley National Historic Site interpreters who take visitors around the village, highlighting the spookier side of local history.

Some of their stories are fully confirmed – old burial practices, local murders and accidents from the days of fur trading and early colonization – while others are less easily proven.

There are a number of stories shared over the years of faces seen at windows of unoccupied homes, of people who suddenly vanished, and of strange experiences within the walls of the Fort itself.

Walks for adults will take place until Oct. 30 at 7, 8, and 9 p.m., and for youths and children five-12, accompanied by an adult, on Oct. 23, and 26-30 at 6 p.m.

Tickets are available from brownpapertickets.com.
