This summer get your walking shoes ready as Slanguage plans to introduce a series of walking tours in Wilmington. The first of its kind will be the “Wilmington Ghost Tour.” This won’t be your ordinary tour but an exciting walking tour featuring hood stories, urban legends, murders and ghosts mixed in with the rich historical history of Wilmington.
A few highlights include:
- Wilmington Historical Cemetery’s famous and not so infamous dead
- Ghost train bridge
- Dead homie’s tree etchings
- Banning Mansion ghosts
- Family murders revealed
- L Street: The most murderous street in Wilmington
- Creepy architecture
- Hunted cement factory
- Drum Barracks ghosts and much more!
Feedback from those who might be interested in joining this and future tours of Wilmington please email your inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also keep posted for future tour dates on the blog and Facebook page.
Background of Tour Project: A few years ago Slanguage did a set of personal tours called “Tourist in my Own City” featuring improv tours of Pico Union and Boyle Heights. Those tours have served as an inspiration to create and host a new series of public tours in our own city. In addition, Mario Ybarra, Jr. and Karla Diaz have experienced a variety of tours on their travels around the county which furthered the want for Slanguage to create tours at home.
