APTA’s “History, Legends, Ghosts, and More Tour” In Bolivar, Tennessee ​this year, the Hardeman County Chapter of APTA in a joint venture with Epic Haunted Tours will conduct historic fall home tours every full weekend in October beginning with (7th & 8th), (14th & 15th), (21st & 22nd) and (28th & 29th). Each Friday and Saturday evening the first guided tours will begin at 6:00pm and go through 8:15pm and the second tours starting from 8:15pm through 10:30pm. Our theme “History, Legends​ , Ghosts and More” is all that and then some. 

Every Friday evening a live paranormal investigation with the Epic Haunted Tours team will be conducted at the “old Hardeman County Jail.” What a great place to investigate; the old jail is reported to be built partly over a cemetery? A lot of strange things have happened here. Every haunted tour should have a cemetery, but not just any cemetery; but Bolivar’s most famous Polk Cemetery. Here you will learn about some of our county’s past leaders and hear docents in character as they tell of their former lives in West Tennessee. The guided “limousine golf cart” tour of the Historic ​ Bills ­ McNeal District tells of the history and lore of the neighborhood, while passing the Tuscan­-style villa of the McNeal Place and Uncle Dave Parran’s home and his rocking chair. Finally passing The Pillars, (1826­-28) where folks like Davy Crockett, Sam Houston, and President Polk once visited. 

On Saturday night tours, join the Epic Haunted Tours paranormal team as they investigate in and around The Pillars. See if “Little Billy” is up for a chat or a prank.  These are not a “fun house” tours, but a real investigation as seen on TV. 

Friday and Saturday night tours are different! As different as the days of the week. So pick a night, early or late or pick the weekend (early or late). Tickets for the event are only $25 per person for either day (early or late) or $35 for the Weekend Pass Special (early or late).
