The Lake County Historical Society presents ‘The Ghosts of the Lake County Courthouse’

RELEASE DATE: October 22, 2015

TAVARES— The Lake County Historical Society is inviting the public for its quarterly meeting and a presentation on “The Ghosts of the Lake County Courthouse” at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 29 at the Historic Courthouse, located at 317 W. Main St. Tavares.

The public is encouraged to attend the meeting to learn more about the Society’s recent progress and future plans, as well as to enjoy refreshments and a free self-guided tour of the museum.

Sanna Henderson, president of the Lake County Historical Society, will give a talk on the courthouse’s former judges, bailiffs and court reporters whose spirits are rumored to still roam the halls of the building, which was erected in 1922. In 1998, the courthouse was placed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and last April, the museum celebrated a ribbon cutting and grand reopening after undergoing major renovations, which included the Lake County Sheriff’s Office administrative offices moving to the upper floors of the building.

Henderson hopes citizens will consider joining the Lake County Historical Society, which costs $15 annually, or volunteer for upcoming events.

The Lake County Historical Museum is located on the first floor of the Lake County Historic Courthouse and is open Thursday - Sunday from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., except during legal holidays.

Group tours of the museum are available by appointment, by calling 352-343-9890.
