Area residents eager for Halloween might want to check out ghost tours this week in downtown Hagerstown.
No, the ghosts won't be giving the tours, though participants might catch a glimpse of a floating figure or ghastly goblin, said organizer Alice Duncan.
There will be 13 stops on the Thursday and Friday tours, including City Hall, Round the Square restaurant, the Baldwin House, the Miller House, The Maryland Theatre and the former Junior Number Three Hose Co. now occupied by Design-Build Architects and Maggie's Hang-Ups on North Potomac Street.
The ghosts of the horses that once pulled old fire engines used to warn firefighters of deadly fires, said Kurt Cushwa, owner of the old fire hall.
