Spooks and Legends Haunted Tours, LLC, was created by Bonnie Florek. Her creativity has certainly been a true asset to her very unique tours. Practically an overnight success, Spooks and Legends has attracted guests from as far away as Holland, France, United Kingdom, Canada and others.
Wearing 18th century costume and strolling through town, Bonnie "becomes" the ghost of a true character who lived in town during the Revolution. First person, costumed tours were designed and developed when realized what was missing from other area tours. Having been a tour guide for other companies, Bonnie knew, first hand, that the majority of the evening was spent on history and lifeless stories. Consequently, she has created her own tours to be what guests truly want and expect. Spooks and Legends makes the reality of spirits come to life through its originality. As new ghostly tales are revealed by 21st century town residents and employees, Bonnie integrates them into her existing tours. All information given has been fully researched, often reported by employees from town. No false props or artificial elements are added to our family friendly tour. If you take photographs and later see ghosts in them, you can be sure they are real.
