Voices from the Grave 

Haunted Cemetery Tour

Advance tickets required

While this Tar Heel town boasts plenty of famous basketball players and politicians, some of Chapel Hill’s most interesting residents now lie six feet under. Explore Chapel Hill's history and learn about the lives of those who once-were during Preservation Chapel Hill’s Voices from the Grave: Haunted Cemetery Tour at the Old Chapel Hill Cemetery on October 24 and 25.

This year brings together the writing talents of John Paul Middlesworth and Paul Baerman in conjunction with Deep Dish Theater. Together, they breathe life back into some of Chapel Hill’s most notable figures.

This year’s tour will offer visitors an opportunity to meet such notables as musicians Adeline and Fred McCall, golfer Estelle Lawson Page, World War I veterans Mallie Jones and John Allen, and others. Dark shadows and lantern light create the perfect mood for visitors to hear the words and the stories of those whose final resting place is below their feet.


  • The Old Chapel Hill Cemetery is at the North West intersection of South and Country Club Roads.
