Looking for a unique (and kinda spooky) way to get into the Halloween spirit? Check THIS out...
The Historical Society of Quincy and Adams County is hosting haunted cemetery tours of historic Woodland Cemetery (1020 South 5th) throughout the month of October. The tours take place each Saturday in October as well as, appropriately, October 31.

Here's the full schedule...
