[ARCHIVED] Canton Historical Society Presents Ghost Stories In the Cady-Boyer Barn

Suitable for ages 8 and up, this scary event will take place from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. in Cady-Boyer Barn, located in Preservation Park at 500 N. Ridge Road.

Enjoy hearing about ghosts, goblins, and all things spooky from two featured storytellers, who will take you on an adventure with tales of fright, twists and turns, and things that go bump in the night. An evening of spine-tingling tales awaits those brave enough to attend. Watch for fright levels to intensify in each story as the night progresses. Cider and donuts are included with the ticket and will be available while supplies last.

Judge Ronald Lowe, as known as The Spellbinder, has been telling scary stories his entire life. He comes by it honestly as his father, mother, aunts and many other family members were storytellers. Lowe became a professional story teller over 25 years ago when he told his first story publicly at The Stone Circle in Elk Rapids MI. In his profession as an attorney, Lowe often incorporated storytelling in his trial work. At the courthouse, Lowe often uses it in the corporate environment to teach from the bench and in his administrative capacity. In his early years, Lowe’s mentor and partner was Dr. Debra Christian who helped him begin and grow as a professional storyteller and Lowe has been telling stories and performing on a regular basis ever since.

Lowe will once again re-team with Dr. Debra Christian as featured storytellers to present hair-raising tales during this year’s Ghost Stories event. Award-winning storyteller Dr. Debra Christian will scare you with her tales from long ago and her travels from around the world on six continents. She has performed at the National Storytelling Festival, WDET National Public Radio, Greenfield Village, the Michigan State Fair and the Detroit Institute of Arts to name a few. Dr. Christian is a speech-language pathologist and has entertained thousands of families, school children, executives, and regional festivals with her stories and oral tradition. A native of Plymouth, MI, this dynamic presenter continues to keep this oral tradition alive through storytelling throughout the Midwest.

If you love hearing scary stories and listening to tales that are sure to give you goose bumps, then this event is for you! Tickets are $4 per individual and can be purchased at the Summit on the Park, the White Pole Barn at the Canton Farmers Market every Sunday, and at the door. All proceeds benefit the Canton Historical Society.
