Ghost Walk 2017

A large crowd enjoyed the beautiful evening at the Old Burying Ground as the Greenfield Historical Society presented its Annual Ghost Walk. "Ghosts" from Greenfield's past told their story in the Old Burying Ground behind Travellers Rest on October 9th.
During the work restoring the Old Burying Ground, volunteers have found that a name keeps reappearing. As they are cleaning the old stones many of the stones have the signature of George Meech carved on them. Scott Andersen and Shirley Shields researched the life of Mr. Meech and determined that he was a stone carver living in Chillicothe who carved stones for the Old Burying Ground. Scott portrayed Meech during the Ghost Walk, sharing information on the work of a stone cutter and the artwork found on the old stones. Some of the stones which Meech carved had their owners come to life to tell their stories as Scott showed visitors around during the walk. These characters included Mary Milligan, played by Teena Thornton; Elizabeth Linn McMillen played by Tonia McClanahan, Matthew Kilgore played by Otis Wagner, Susanna Jane Crothers played by Susan Long and Alexander Crawford Sr. played by Danny Long.
