Graveyard tour was great. More historical than a "ghost tour" type of event, but my wife and I prefer history to nonsense anyhow. Rained the entire time which added to the overall experience. Tour guide was very knowledgeable!

Only one of the buildings that I remember, but it happened to be the one with the most paranormal activity. The name of the building escapes my memory.
