Chilling, indeed – it was one of the first brisk nights of the season that I dragged my father along on this particular Historic Indiana Ghost Walk. For those of us who prefer a less startling brand of Halloween attraction, Michael and Nicole Kobrowksi offer a creepy spin on the educational walking tour. Beginning at the Athenaeum, our excursion explored the surrounding neighborhood and its Germanic roots, moving on to Mass Ave. and rounding out at James Whitcomb Riley's Museum Home in Lockerbie Square. The couple has certainly done their research; Michael, our tour guide for the evening, cited a number of local sources in retelling the ghost stories of such sites as the Murat and St. Joseph's church, backing up each account with extensive fact-checking. The tales are just spooky enough; I doubt I'll be able to confidently walk the alleys of Mass Ave. after learning of "the lady Bettina" and her grim demise. Experience the jaunt for yourselves this Saturday, October 2, at 8 p.m.; just be sure to bring a jacket.
