The Haunted Downtown Tours of Cape Girardeau will take place throughout the month of October.
For over five years, these tours have brought the tales of Cape’s past to the present. From haunted buildings to Civil War ghosts, the downtown area continues to intrigue crowds.
Christy Mershon is the Assistant Director of Extended and Continuing Education at Southeast Missouri State University as well as a Haunted Tour leader.
She says over the years, the interest in local ghost stories has grown rapidly.
