Historical association presents ‘Haunted History’

The city of Newton, the Catawba County Historical Association, along with the help of Once Upon A Time children’s book store in Newton and the city of Newton Festival and Events Committee, are proud to announce the return of Cynthia Moore Brown for “Haunted History,” Saturday, Oct. 26. The spooky storytelling event is scheduled from 5-8 p.m. at the Catawba County Museum of History located at 30 N. College Ave. in downtown Newton.

From haunted houses, creaking gates, shadows and spirits to pirates and spooky castles, Brown conjures stories that are mesmerizing for all ages.

During the tall tales event, Brown amazed folks with stories of the creepy variety and when the Catawba County Museum of History was recently approached about contributing to Newton’s SPOOKTACULAR, they knew exactly who to call.

As a retired teacher and librarian, Brown has been an acclaimed performer and educator for over three decades in North Carolina and the South. She has traveled the country performing, conducting workshops and collecting stories.

Brown uses her many talents to bring texture to her down home Southern style. Her original and traditional historic ghost stories are fan favorites. With her sparkling whirl of music, stories and audience interaction her folktales are energized for listeners of any age.

As a part of the CCHA’s Autumn Lecture Series, Brown will be on hand during Newton’s SPOOKTACULAR to tell her legendary ghost stories on the lawn of the Museum of History in downtown Newton.

Newton’s SPOOKTACULAR will be held on the streets of downtown, on Oct. 26 between the hours of 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. More information can be found by calling 828-465-0383 or visiting www.catawbahistory.org.
