Abingdon Spirit Tours
Now in its 19th year, Abingdon Spirit Tours are led by the one and only Haint Mistress, Donnamarie Emmert. This popular tour, especially in the month of October, can be reserved throughout the year, weather permitting. It is a two hour walking tour of downtown Abingdon, where visitors are entertained with bits of Abingdon history as well as local ghost lore. Named a Passionate Virginian in 2009 by Virginia Tourism, Donnamarie Emmert packs a whole lot of storytelling and animation into her renowned Abingdon Spirit Tours.
During October, Emmert offers regular tours with no reservations needed. Her October 2015 schedule offers a tour every night the 16th-18th and the the 21st through 30th. Time is 7:30, and meeting place is at the gazebo at the Martha Washington Hotel. Price is $15 per person, and reservations are not needed.
