After guiding a VIP tour last Saturday evening, the spooky tour is now open to the public!
Guests were guided Saturday night by the city's old shovel dragging grave digger who can recall many of the lives and deaths of those "Souls of Norcross" he has interrred in the cemetery that sits on the hill across Buford Highway. The group both laughed and shivered as they heard the deathly tales only a dirty old timer can tell.

Haunted History Walks of Norcross is a guided tour that will depart from in front of the 45 South Cafe beginning at 7 p.m. and will depart every hour or so to accomodate guests. The ticket booth will open at 6…
