West Endings Tour

St. Paul’s Senior Adults Ministry is sponsoring a “West Endings Tour” of historic West End on Thursday, April 25, led by guide Dan Riedel, owner of Carolina History & Haunts. The tour begins in the courtyard of Tart Sweets bakery (formerly Michael’s Restaurant) at 1:45 p.m. and lasts for 90 minutes.

On a one-mile stroll through the Historic West End District, the group will walk the old Victorian streets hearing stories of love, money and a few unfortunate endings. Riedel will tell stories of the local history and haunts as well as the area’s superstitious customs as he leads the group to the sites where some of Winston-Salem’s former residents continue to have an everlasting presence.

To take the tour, send a check for $20 to Senior Adults Minister Anne Rahn. Contact Anne at (336) 723-4797 or arahn@stpauls-ws.org.
