Meet and greet some of the characters from Plymouth’s past during the Plymouth Historical Museum’s “Ghosts of Plymouth” walk, Saturday, April 23. Hear the tales of early Plymouth from the characters themselves.

Featured will be the stately Second Empire house of prominent Plymouth resident John Gale at 885 Penniman Ave., now the Plymouth Coffee Bean Co. If you would like to meet John Gale and hear his story in person he will be one of the many “ghosts” in the upcoming walk along with other early Plymouth residents.

Gale owned a grocery/pharmacy store just down the street from his residence on Penniman where the Greek Islands Coney Restaurant now stands, at the corner of Main Street.  For more than 60- years, Gale helped keep the people of Plymouth stocked with their daily needs, everything from medicine to groceries to yard goods. He also stocked many varieties of wall paper which he would gladly trade for a dozen eggs.

The walks begin at 4 p.m. and leave every 15 minutes, going up and down two blocks of Penniman  and lasting up to 90 minutes. Participants should meet in the alcove between Kilwin’s and the Penn Bar & Grill. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 per person the day of the Ghost Walk if the walk is not sold out.

Groups of 8 or more should contact the Plymouth Historical Museum for a group rate of $12 per ticket. Call 734-455-8940 x0 for more information.
