Event Details

The GFWC Appalachian Leading Ladies Junior Woman’s Club (ALL JWC) has added several new features to its annual Haunted History Walk in downtown Honaker.

Slated for Saturday, Oct. 14, the walk will feature local storytellers sharing spooky tales and lore from the town’s past. Slated to begin at 7 p.m., volunteer guides will take participants to various stops at well-known historical locations around town. Additionally, the club is ramping up the excitement with a haunted house and haunted hayride.

The club hosted its inaugural Haunted History Walk in 2021, which drew over 50 people to downtown Honaker. Last year, the event grew to over 265 participants.

The club wanted to make the event more appealing for both fans of the history and lore of Honaker, as well as those who enjoy the spookier side of the season. They will be including several stories from last year’s event and adding lots of new content. ALL JWC encourages past attendees to consider joining us once more.

Plus, they’re thrilled to offer two new activities for their more adventurous participants – a haunted house and haunted hayride.

The club has invited food trucks to set up for a small flat rate of $25. School clubs and athletic teams have been offered the chance to sell concessions and other items. Bathrooms will be available.

For each activity, the cost is $5 per person. Participants may reserve their walk online. All others will be grouped on a first-come first-served basis. Cash only for in-person reservations. Participants are encouraged to bring their own flashlights and wear comfortable shoes. All taking part in the walk should be prepared for occasional incline
