Ghost tours, historic homes part of "April in Talladega" | Community Spirit
From the Talladega Chamber of Commerce:
Talladega welcomes Spring with its annual pilgrimage on April 13 & 14. This year "April in Talladega" features historic home tours, a ghosts of Talladega tour in Oak Hill Cemetery, a special quilt display at Heritage Hall, exhibits at the nearby AJ Powers Lodge and much more. The weekend will end with "April on the Square" on Saturday evening.
Tickets for the tour are $15.00 per person - group rates of 10 or more will be $12.50 per person and students are $10.00 each. A "Taste of Talladega" luncheon at St. Peter's Episcopal Church has been very popular in years past - separate advance tickets should be purchased for this event with luncheon seatings available at 11:30 a.m. on both Friday and Saturday.
A local favorite is expanded this year as some of Oak Hill Cemetery's most popular residents will be on hand, dressed in period clothes, to visit with you and talk about the grandeur of their time and Talladega. This even is scheduled for 5:00 and 5:15 p.m. only on Friday.
Homes featured on tour are the South Street homes of Lt. Col, and Mrs. Tom Lutchendorf and Dr. and Mrs. Terry Graham which is the President's Home for the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind. The "Town's End Farm" home of Dr. and Mrs. Jimmy Davis, and the Hawthorne Street homes of Mr. and Mrs. James Armstrong and Ms. Brenda Kent will be open.
