The Ellicottville Historical Society and John Koerner, founder of Paranormal Walks, author, professor and historian, invite the public on Oct. 4 to join them for Ghouls, Graves and Ghosts, a haunted ghost hunt through historic Ellicottville.

Registration starts at 8 p.m. at the village gazebo in front of the town/village hall. A lecture on haunted Ellicottville and the history of the town hall and museum will follow at 8:30.

At 9 p.m., ghost hunters will break up into small groups to gather evidence at the town hall, United Church of Ellicottville and the Ellicottville Historical Museum. Groups will reassemble to examine the evidence.

Then at 10 p.m., the groups will take a 7-minute walk to the Jefferson Street Cemetery to visit a few graves.

The cost is $20, and organizers said half of the proceeds will go to the Ellicottville Historical Society.

For more information, go to or call Ellen Frank at 699-2276 or 474-8528.
