So last night was one of my roommates official birthday (yay more people in the 23 year old club!) and she gathered together a small group to do a walking ghost tour of downtown D.C.!
After booking our tickets online, I received a confirmation email stating that
“Your tour guide will be dressed in period costume and carrying a lantern”.
Signs of a good time, right?
We met at the corner of Lafeyette Square or Presidents Park which, unbeknownst to me, was part of the original white house lawn later donated to the city for a park by Thomas Jefferson. Its a beautiful and historic section of the city, surrounded by old row houses, hotels, and of course…The White House!
Our tour took us around the outside edges of the park, telling stories of love triangles gone wrong, murders posed as suicides, a poorly ending duel, and the history of insanity that ran within the family who was with Abe and Mary Todd Lincoln during the assassination in Ford Theater.
Again, my picture taking skills could have been better but here are some images of the spooky places!
These end of October 80 degree days are throwing me off.. where is cool & crisp fall!
