It was 10 years ago that the mysterious Lady in the Red Cloak began leading lantern-lit walks, describing the history and mystery of in-town Damariscotta and Newcastle.
Now that concept has grown to include eight Maine villages, four cemeteries, an excursion boat, an island, and cruise ship passengers in Bar Harbor.
As part of its 10-year anniversary celebration, Red Cloak Haunted History Tours is inviting the public to join in on a special tour to benefit the historical societies in Damariscotta, Newcastle, and Nobleboro.
The tour will wind through the streets of in-town Damariscotta while the Lady in the Red Cloak imparts tales of history and mystery associated with surrounding landmarks.
The benefit tour is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m., Friday, June 24. The fee for the tour is $15 for adults and $7 for children. Arrangements can be made by calling 380-3806 or going online to redcloakhauntedhistorytours.com.
