As part of its Preserve America heritage, Roxbury hosted Ghost Tour Coach for several years as a pre-Halloween celebration.
During these special events, a Ghost coach would emerge from the shadows and take its fearless passengers to see who among Roxbury’s celebrated spectres would deign to appear when mystery met history in this historic hamlet. Those grand dames who could be seen lining Main Street echoed ghosts from the days of bustling hotels and taverns. These Ghost Coach Tours illustrated how Roxbury’s rich history is a natural breeding ground for melodrama, legend and secrets told only from the grave.
Even those too scared to peek at the shadows emerging from the dark came away with a second sense of Roxbury’s past and the most human elements dredged from the bottomless well of her history.
