Learn About Marshall County’s Haunted History on Friday the 13th

The Marshall County Historical Society Museum will be holding their final brown bag lunch event of the season on Friday the 13th. Community members are encouraged to bring a lunch down to the museum at 123 N Michigan Street in Plymouth to hear from a special speaker.

Mindy Langdon, community relations for the museum, said the historian will reveal some of the haunted history of Marshall County, “Our guest speaker is Jeff Kenney and he’s from the Culver area and he’s got some really great ghost stories to tell about things in the area that are kind of spooky.”

The event is held from noon to one, but concludes a little before the hour to allow individuals enough time to make it back to work if they’re on their lunch break. Get into the Halloween spirit a few weeks early by learning about the mysterious stories attached to local places you may see regularly.
