The inaugural Historical Haunted tour, a joint fundraiser between Trails and Vistas and the Truckee Donner Historical Society, was a great success. The sold out event, hosted by Trio Wine Bar, included taking guests on a walking tour around Truckee with stops at some of townand#8217;s haunted buildings and sites.

Eileen Lewis, Helen Heindel, Lisa Robertson, Colleen Dalton, Cindy Maciel, Nancy Lopez and Chelsea Walterscheid were tour guides in period dress, escorting attendees through The Kruger White House, The Old Jail Museum, The Pour House, The Truckee Hotel and The Pharmacy. These businesses kindly donated their places for the performances.

Jane Pedrazzini, Mark Brown, Jean Fournier, Kurt Breitwieser and Reina Markheim took on personalities from the past and related spooky happenings and famous hauntings at the sites. Guests enjoyed wine and music by Ian Ethan Case and Chris Waltz in the beautiful surroundings of the Kruger White House.

The event included a successful silent auction, put together by Judy Dunlap and raising nearly $3,000 for the two nonprofits. The money raised will be used to purchase archiving software for the Old Jail Museum and new computers and online research tools for the Historical Societyand#8217;s Joseph Research Library.

Trails and Vistas will use the money to expand and enhance community art workshops during the 2010 summer season.

Thank you to all the community businesses who donated items for the auction. Christina Stoever-Young and Sunshine Marketing produced the event and provided flashlights to ward away ghosts during the tours.

We would like to say thank you to all who purchased tickets, participated and helped with the event, continuing to support the arts, culture and history in Truckee.
