FUN EVENTS WITH A PRESERVATION PURPOSE 
The Historical Society hosts two “Ghost Walks” in Apalachicola’s historic Chesnut Street Cemetery. One is held on the first Saturday in May and the other is on the last Saturday in October . Re-enactors dress up in period costumes and spin a tale about some of Apalachicola’s earliest inhabitants. Proceeds from the event are used for cemetery preservation purposes.
