If you've ever wanted to take a walk in to the past, you just might get the opportunity as the Spirit of Charlottesville makes his way to Downtown Charlottesville.

The 11th annual Spirit Walk in Downtown Charlottesville kicks off Friday, October 21, in Court Square, and continues through October 23. The 90 minute tour will take tourist on a walk through several historical events from right here in Charlottesville.

CBS19 and ABC16 are told that one of the highlights of the evening will be the trial reenactment of a former Charlottesville mayor, from the early 1900's, who murdered his wife. Guides of the tour will be dressed in early 1900's authentic clothing.

"It's a great time to see Charlottesville and to see what happened here and how Charlottesville played into making this nation what it is," said Spirit Walk Artistic Director, Ron Pentz-Harris.

The Spirit Walk is sponsored by the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society.

The cost is $12 for adults and $5 for children. A new tour will begin every 15 minutes and tickets are asked to be purchased in advance.
