Put on a comfortable pair of walking shoes, grab a jacket and flashlight and listen to the stories and legends that have haunted historic Fort Riley.

The Historical and Archeological Society of Fort Riley is hosting its annual ghost tours, 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. this Sunday.

Tour guides will lead groups of about 50 people to each of the eight stops on the one mile walking tour. Visitors will stop and hear tales of the unexplained and ghost stories that have been shared by past and/or present building inhabitants. Groups will leave about every 20 minutes, and everyone who is present before 7 p.m. will still be taken on the tour.

The tours are free and open to the public, but donations are welcome. For a suggested $5 donation, guests can get a “Fast Pass” to avoid the long waits. Proceeds and donations will go to HASFR to support community scholarships and future ghost tours.

No reservations are needed, and the tour is stroller-friendly. Tour participants are asked to not bring pets, however. Visitors are asked to park in the lot near Artillery Parade Field, off Pershing Court.
