.COOPERSTOWN CANDLELIGHT GHOST TOURS BEGINs 8th FULL SEASON ON SUNDAY, APRIL 1 (www.cooperstownghost.com) A traditional rite of spring, Cooperstown Candlelight Ghost Tours will begin its eighth full season of operation on Sunday night, April 1, with a tour beginning at 8:00 p.m. Spring and summer tours will be offered seven nights a week, from April through August.

The village of Cooperstown has become nationally known for its paranormal activity, in part because of a 2010 visit by Ghost Hunters, the popular TV series featured on the SyFy Channel. Tours will include discussion of the Ghost Hunters™ experiences, along with stories of traditional locations like the Christ Episcopal Church graveyard, the houses of Byberry Cottage, Greencrest, and Pomeroy Place, and the Haunted Lake, Lake Otsego. Most of the Sunday night tours will spotlight the west side of the village, with particular attention to The Otesaga Resort Hotel, which gained nationwide acclaim during an episode of Ghost Hunters.
In addition to stories of ghosts and hauntings, the tours will feature the history of the village of Cooperstown, including discussion of prominent citizens like Judge William Cooper and his son, famed author James Fenimore Cooper.
Tours will be led by Bruce Markusen, a Hamilton College graduate and local author, and by Steve Light, a graduate of Gettysburg College and an expert on the Civil War.
