The Luzerne County Historical Society is proud to announce that our Annual Downtown Wilkes-Barre Ghost Walks will be returning again this year! The popular tours will run October 20th and 21st 2017. Come join us for a walking tour of the downtown historic district and learn about totally true ghosts, murders, and hidden graveyards, all right here in the Diamond City! Stops include: Public Square, the site of the former Sterling Hotel, River Street, and the only known place where Romans walked, right here in Wilkes-Barre. Come join the Society’s own Dr. William V. Lewis and our other guides as they take you on a trip through the darker side of the city, from the mid-1700s, right through the 20th century.
