Friends of DPL hosting ‘Ghost Tales of Antebellum Alabama’


DEMOPOLIS, Ala. — History buffs, ghost hunters, and people interested in the antebellum period of Alabama have a chance to learn more at the Demopolis Public Library. The Friends of the Demopolis Public Library are excited to present “Ghost Tales of Antebellum Alabama” with historian Jim Phillips on Thursday, Oct. 15 at 6 p.m. at the Demopolis Public Library.

Can a ghost be benevolent…a peaceful, kind spirit? Can a ghost be dangerous and threatening? Come to the library and hear what some people have told Jim Phillips about unexpected visitations like entities in their daily lives. He’s had some people almost reluctantly relate sightings of apparitions that have appeared. These stories deal with what would appear to be spirits returning to where they lived in their lives in Alabama in the 1800s. Phillips will bring these stories to life through his program “Ghost Tales of Antebellum Alabama.”

Phillips, who holds a master’s degree in educational media, has produced several                      educational and historical videos on places in Alabama. This program is free and sponsored by The Friends of the Demopolis Public Library. For more information contact Morgan Allen at (334) 289-1595.

The Marengo County Public Library in Linden will offer “Ghost Tales of Antebellum Alabama” at noon on Thursday, Oct. 15.
