Shrouded Tales: Hayward's eerie past

Submitted By Myron Freedman

October is the season for macabre tales, and nothing is spookier than when the stories are true. Hayward Area Historical Society invites you to its three historic properties for some hist-eerie fun during their "Shrouded Tales" tours. Join "The Undertaker," portrayed by actor Kyle Green, as he walks you through some of the area's reportedly haunted sites, and recounts tragic tales of local families and brings to light the dark deeds of unsavory characters - all tinged by Victorian-era death traditions and superstitions, as well as accounts of paranormal activity.

Due to the popularity of last year's "Shrouded Tales" program, the Historical Society tripled the number of tours for 2013. However, space is limited for each tour, so call to make reservations for one or more of the following tours: October 4 - 6 at the San Lorenzo Pioneer Cemetery located at the corner of Hesperian Boulevard and College Street; October 11 - 13 at Meek Mansion located at 17365 Boston Road; and October 18 - 20 at the McConaghy House located at 18701 Hesperian Boulevard. Two tours are available each night at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Tickets are $10 and $5 for seniors, students, and Society members and must be purchased in advance. Space is limited. Call Heather at Hayward Area Historical Society at (510) 581-2516 for reservations. For additional information regarding "Shrouded Tales" contact Heather or visit
