For anyone seeking an atmospheric time hearing about the lingering spirits of the dearly and not-so-dearly departed while walking among historic homes located on small tree-lined streets, a trek to Hamilton may be in order. For the sixth year, the Dayton Lane Historic Area will offer “Ghost Walks of Dayton Lane,” a lantern-led evening stroll through one of Hamilton’s oldest neighborhoods. A tour guide will provide tales about the alleged ghosts and other spooky legends connected to the homes. At the end of the hour-long walk, a reception will be held in one of the houses, and spiritual consultant Victor Paruta will be on hand to give readings for an extra fee. Depending on the weather, if you let your imagination run free you might think you’re in 19th century New England for a moment, in a scene out of an Edgar Allen Poe story. Tours leave the Wolf Gazebo in the 900 block of Campbell Avenue every hour from 7-9 p.m. Admission is $15 per person. Each tour lasts from 40 -60 minutes.
