The Learning Center! Charter School is working through the Jackie Ward Foundation and The Cherokee County Paranormal Society to offer a historical walking tour of the town of Murphy. The Friday night tour will kick off the “Legend Has It Weekend,” which includes the school’s annual Monster Mash Bash (Sat. night, October 25)…an event that has become a legend unto itself as it enters its 11th year.
The two-hour walking tour of Murphy, NC costs $20 per person and happens on Friday, October 24th at 8:15pm. The “Legend Has It” walking tour will be guided by local actor and arts enthusiast David Vowell, working with an array of actors from area and regional community theaters who will make Murphy’s rich local history come to life. There will be an end-of-tour gathering at Parson’s Pub for tour participants and refreshments will be served.
“We are excited to add this historical component to our Monster Mash Weekend activities,” said Learning Center director, Mary Jo Dyre. “Each year we offer a family-oriented, themed Halloween event with a haunted maze that is a local favorite.”
All profits for the “Legend Has It” walking tour go directly towards the “Academics and the Arts” program at The Learning Center. Tickets can be purchased at The Learning Center office, online at www.naturallygrownkids or The Curiosity Shop Bookstore in downtown Murphy. For more details or call 828-835-7240.
