During the month of October many individuals turn their thoughts toward ghosts, ghost stories, and other paranormal events. Justin Stevens is one such individual, focusing his concentration on the ghosts of Martinsburg. On Thursday, October 24 at 7:00 PM, Stevens will share his love of local history and ghost stories at the Martinsburg Public Library.
Stevens' interest in ghosts began when his grandmother told him his very first ghost stories. Over the years he heard various stories about the ghosts of Martinsburg, and recently he observed that most historical towns have a ghost tour to honor their ghostly heritage. However, Martinsburg does not. With this in mind, Stevens began collecting local ghost stories only to find the town was rich in ghostly lore!
This program coincides with Stevens' ghost tours of Martinsburg, titled Haunted History & Legends of Martinsburg, West Virginia, which he will be offering throughout the month of October. Tour schedule and cost information can be found by contacting Justin Stevens at:
The program on October 24th at the library is free and open to the public.
