---- — The ninth full season for Cooperstown Candlelight Ghost Tours is underway.

Having begun its latest season of tours in April, the ghost tour will consist of ghost walks that begin nightly at 8 p.m. at Pioneer Park, located at the corner of Main and Pioneer streets. Nightly ghost tours will continue through the end of August.

Reservations are required. To make a reservation, call 547-8070 or send an email to bmarkusen@stny.rr.com.

Tour prices remain the same as in the past: $15 for adults and $10 for children (ages 6-12). Children 5 and younger are admitted free.

According to a media release, the ghost tours are intended to provide both local residents and visitors with an opportunity to learn more about the village’s rich history of ghostly sightings and haunted houses. Among the highlighted stories are the curse of Hyde Hall, which was the subject of a recent investigation by the SyFy Channel’s “Ghost Hunters.” Other eerie stories include the hauntings of Byberry Cottage, Greencrest and Pomeroy Place (all located on River Street), the ghosts of the Christ Episcopal Church graveyard, and the haunting of the Hall of Fame.

The Cooperstown Candlelight Ghost Tours season will continue in September and October, with fall ghost tours being offered on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays at 7 pm.
