Penfield’s Historic Ghost Walk Penfield Local History Room & Penfield Recreation are beginning Penfield’s Bicentennial early with a visit from some of the early settlers of our quaint town. Join us and you will have the opportunity to visit and hear from the spirits of Penfield. The portal curtain that divides this world from the next is open for the ghosts to walk amongst us and share some of their memories of this once small village. Do not be afraid! They are here as friends and teachers, ready to tell a story or relive a moment in time once not so long ago. Travel the old paths and meet many spirits on their way to their respective destinations. The 200th Bicentennial has created great excitement with the past residents of Penfield and they are thrilled to celebrate the history that is rooted in the rolling hills of the east.
