Jonesboro, Ga. – This October, the Clayton County Convention & Visitors Bureau (CCCVB) is scaring up a frighteningly fun time with the launch of their newest minibus tour, the Jonesboro Historic Haints & Haunts Tour.
Hosted at 8 p.m. every Friday and Saturday evening throughout October (excluding Fri., October 19 and Sat., October 20), the Jonesboro Historic Haints & Haunts Tour invites visitors to explore the strange sightings, unexplainable encounters and dark secrets of Jonesboro’s past. The tour will also feature additional weekday tours during Halloween week including Tues., October 30 and Wed., October 31.
Rebekah Cline, Director of Marketing and Communications for the Clayton County Convention & Visitors Bureau, explains “With a rich history rooted in fierce battles and colorful characters, Jonesboro has long been rumored to play host to a variety of supernatural activity. The Jonesboro Historic Haints & Haunts Tour pairs local legend and lore with first hand encounters and paranormal investigation findings to allow individuals to determine truth versus tale.”
A 90 minute adventure, Jonesboro’s Historic Haints & Haunts Tour is a guide-led minibus tour that provides the exclusive opportunity to explore five haunted locations on foot. Visitors will have the chance to inspect the shadowed corners of the historic train depot, investigate the century old graves of the Patrick Cleburne Confederate Cemetery, step within the grounds of the Warren House, discover the story behind the gates at Stately Oaks Plantation and uncover the secrets of the Old Jail.
Departing from Jonesboro’s historic train depot/Welcome Center (104 North Main Street, Jonesboro, Ga. 30236), tours begin at 8 p.m. on all dates. Tickets are $22.95 per person and must be purchased in advance by calling 770.478.4800. Walk-ups will be accepted the evening of the tour based on existing availability. Group rates are available for parties of 6 or more by contacting Julie Bustamante at 770. 478.4800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
