The cost of the tour is $10 per person for non-members, and it is absolutely free to members of the Stearns History Museum.



Most people will be expecting this to be a ghost tour, but it's quite the opposite. On this tour, the Stearns History Museum will be discussing the history of the cemetery itself, as well as several of its residents.

I spoke with Caitlin Carlson, Program and Visitor Services Manager, about this unique event, and this tour will be event better than a 'ghost' tour; because the tour will be based on actual people who lived here in central Minnesota, and who have interesting histories in and of themselves.

Do you want some ghost stories? Then hang around afterward, as the tour will then head over to the Palmer House Hotel & Restaurant to share a drink, and raise a glass to the fallen.

The Palmer House Hotel and Restaurant is located at 500 Sinclair Lewis Avenue in Sauk Centre. This location has an incredible history; but if you want to hear about the local ghost stories, it's also THE place to go for fun stories and possibly some ghostly experiences.

LOOK: How Halloween has changed in the past 100 years

Stacker compiled a list of ways that Halloween has changed over the last 100 years, from how we celebrate it on the day to the costumes we wear trick-or-treating. We’ve included events, inventions, and trends that changed the ways that Halloween was celebrated over time. Many of these traditions were phased out over time. But just like fake blood in a carpet, every bit of Halloween’s history left an impression we can see traces of today.
