October 21st and 28th -- Haunted Taylor Returns!
      Do you want to know why ghosts occupy downtown Taylor? Do you want to know why, in 1878, just two years after its founding a railroad official wrote, "Taylor is an El Dorado of toughs, a regular hell-hole of saloons and gambling houses?"
      Then join Taylor Conservation and Heritage Society guides as they take you to some of the most haunted spots in historic downtown Taylor. Even if you've taken the tour before, you'll learn additional information about our murders, mayhem, and haunts.
      The approximately 1½ hour walking tour will describe the violent murders and suicides that resulted in Taylor's most restless spirits and haunted sites.
      There are four tours this year: Saturday, October 21st at 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. and Saturday, October 28th at 7:30 and 8:30 p.m.
      Tickets are only $15 each. Log on to http://www.hauntedtaylor.com to reserve your place. These times sold out quickly last year so we recommend getting your tickets early!
