The Apalachicola Area Historical Society’s twice-yearly Ghost Walk haunted Chestnut Cemetery Saturday night as a dozen volunteers portrayed famous citizens of the city who now reside for eternity in the graveyard. The walk was well-attended by about 300 people, and raised more than $1,400, raising the total to more than $8,000 over the past three years in funds earmarked for cemetery improvements. In the photo above, ABC School fifth-grader Livia Monod portrays Freda Julia Flatauer, the plucky daughter of Apalachicola businessman Adolph Flatauer. Young Freda was crippled from falling off an ice wagon when she was little, and later died of typhoid fever in 1910 at age 15.
Who’s a Freda ghosts?
