Take A Bow, Ghosts & All!

Thanks to so many for the five fantastic nights of Ghosts of Sotterley 2018 ~ "Terror on the Home Front!" The cast and crew all did a phenomenal job bringing the thrills and chills from the Civil War era to life in the eeriest ways. Tour guests enjoyed trekking through the woods, trying to anticipate what could possibly come next, only to be shocked by the realistic creepiness in each and every scene! Take a bow, all of you! You have our sincere thanks ... and very loud and lasting applause!
