There are lots of fun things to do in Stone Mountain Village for our residents here at Southern Oaks Apartment Homes.  If ID-10057880your in the mood for ghostly encounter, then join the ART Station Village Ghost Tour on Friday or Saturday evenings.

The Ghost Tour starts at the ART Station where guests are shuttled to the Stone Mountain Cemetery where they are met by ART Station Master Storyteller David Hirt.  While in the cemetery, David shares the stories of the man who is buried beside his horse, the story of ole Jim Higgins who is buried with a peck of hickory nuts and shares the phenomenon of the glow from the 200 confederate graves.

The tour proceeds through the historic village of Stone Mountain with stops at the Wells Brown House for a modern telling of Stone Mountain’s own Romeo and Juliet. There is also a stop at the oldest building in the village, the Andrew Johnson Home where villagers today still see the nurse in the window holding a candle.

Make your reservation today for the next scheduled tour, August 28th & 29th.  The cost is $25 for adults and $18 for children 14 and under.
