Hunt the Ghost of Marshall Tom Hill on the Anniversary of His Death at the Buffalo Gap Historic Village

The Buffalo Gap Historic Village is hosting a special celebration in remembrance of Marshall Tom Hill on the 128th anniversary of his death. This is a nighttime event that starts at 11 PM and lasts until 1 AM. You are encouraged to bring your cameras and recorders as you spend the night in Tom's house where he died. Organizers hope to get a glimpse of Tom's ghost and maybe speak with him. Space is limited so get your tickets early. I'd like to add that this is the same hunt that Pete Beretta went on, when he had the 'Milk Duds' scared out of him.
