Downtown Lima is giving their community a haunted history of the city in their annual Lantern Tours.

The tours kicked off this weekend, starting at the new Shop for Good store on Market St. The tours went down Elizabeth St, stopping along the way to talk about places like Kewpee and the old location for Mulligan's Bar. The night was full of bits of history and folklore surrounding the downtown area, most notably some of the paranormal stories behind the storefronts. 

"It's amazing, some of the buildings actually have some of the paranormal that people will tell you about," said Aubree Kaye, Exec. Director for Downtown Lima, Inc. "There's others that don't say anything and say: 'oh, no, there's nothing,' but there's others that people come forward quite a bit and say, hey, you need to come down here, we have something in here and we find it is very interesting just to see the history of the building and some of the events that have happened and occurred in them."

Tours for 2018 are already sold out but you can keep an eye out on downtown Lima's Facebook page for updates on next year's ticket sales.
