Pitt County's Haunted History

Farmville Public Library, 4276 West Church St., Farmville, NC 27828
To put you in the mood for Halloween, Pitt County historian, Roger Kammerer, will share haunted stories of Pitt County on Saturday, October 24 at 10:30 am at the Library. Roger is known as a great storyteller and researcher, which will no doubt show in this program on an interesting and little-known aspect of Pitt County’s history. Roger is the author of over twenty books and is the editor of Pitt County Genealogical Quarterly. Please call the Library at (252) 753-3355 for more information.

Last year was our FIRST YEAR and it was super thrilling with only a few weeks of planning and lots of hard work from Chocowinity Fire Department, vendors, K-OS, and dozens of great volunteers of all ages. This year, we are planning way ahead and promise to SCARE YOU MORE with addition of a corn maze entangled into our haunted trail and hayride. This event is recommended for ages 10 and up, with adults, as it is not for the little ones. Parental discretion advised.
