FREEPORT — For three nights, several prominent former Freeport residents will lead lantern-lit tours through the Woodlawn Cemetery, detailing their past lives and their connections to the town’s history.

The ghosts – actually high school students – will dress as maritime captains, clergy, shipbuilders and a Civil War veteran. They will lead groups of 10 on 40-minute walking tours of the historic cemetery as part of the Freeport Historical Society’s “Ghosts of Freeport’s Past.”

The society will also be hosting a gallery reading with phychic Eddita Felt, who will answer three “yes or no” questions from attendants, but may share more information if the questions merit a longer response, Director Christina White.

The walking tours will begin at 6:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 26, Saturday, Oct. 27 and Sunday, Oct. 30, at the Woodland Cemetery on West Street. Cost is $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12.

The psychic reading will be from 5:30-7:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 25, at 45 Main St. Cost is $22 and includes light refreshments. Reservations are required.
