What better time than the Halloween season to take an after-dark tour of Misery Bay and Graveyard Pond on Presque Isle. On Friday, October 21 a tour of the area where in the winter of 1813 smallpox spread through Commodore Perry’s Flagship, the Niagara and other sailors will take place. At first, those ill moved to quarantine in the hold of the ship. However, the illness quickly spread and Peery had to do something else.
When many of his crew were lost, Perry was forced to order that they be buried at sea. The only place available at the time was a deep lagoon pond near Misery Bay. The story continues and many myths grow out of this event. When you take one of the three tours, your guides will fill you in on the rest of the legends of Misery Bay and Grave Yard Pond.
There will be three tours that evening and they are scheduled at:
6:45 p.m. 7 p.m. 7:15 p.m. Tours begin at the Perry Monument parking area.
Each tour will walk about one mile, learn about the myths and legends of the area and experience the nocturnal wildlife of the park. I am sure that this will be a fun night for the whole family. It is suitable for all ages. It is free. However, registration is necessary. Email – -firstname.lastname@example.org or call 814 833 7424
