I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – and again – why do I not hang out in Greer more often? It is the coziest town.
DYK: Before it was Greer, the area was known as Old Blakely Place. James Manning Greer owned 200 acres of farmland, eventually trading pieces of land for a wagon + team of mules! An acre of land sold anywhere from $25 to $75.
Last Friday, Preston and I took their NEW Secret Passages Tour! I don’t want to spoil it for you, but let’s just say that Preston is still talking about it.
The Secret Passage Tour comes with a warning label. I’ll admit, I thought it was for spooky effect…
I was mistaken. We had to sign waivers when we arrived. 😰
Pay close attention to the website. If you have a bad back or bad knees, certain moments are not for you. You should also be able to maneuver through tight spaces. It’s called “secret passages” for a reason!
Preston was quick to let our guide know he was a “history nerd.” The two became fast friends.
Parts of the tour are dark + there are definitely creepy aspects to the experience, (hello little girl ghost), but don’t be scared! The night is more of a behind-the-scenes adventure into the location’s past. The “Ghost Master” is a passionate well of knowledge + the information is invaluable.
Halloween is right around the corner ~ grab tickets to both tours here.
