Crozet, VA, September 16, 2011: Historical haunts return once more to Crozet Avenue on October 21st and 22nd when the Field School of Charlottesville convenes its third annual Spirit Walk to celebrate the history of Crozet and Western Albemarle. The Spirit Walk gathers the Crozet community — the very past, past, and present — for a family friendly evening of visits with the likes of Samuel Miller, Paul McIntire, Meriwether Lewis, Thomas Jefferson, and other famous figures.

The Spirit Walk begins at the Field School where guests are greeted by a delightfully ghostly guide who shares tales of old Crozet on the short bus ride down to The Square where they then disembark to begin the short return walk up Crozet Avenue to the Field School. Along the way the guests are introduced to our famous friends who share their history of our community. The tour ends at the Field School where hot apple cider, donuts, baked goods, and the Field School’s famous home-made apple butter are available for purchase.

“We at the Field School take great pride in being a part of the Crozet community and are passionate about preserving and celebrating our community’s history. The Spirit Walk is a fun way to connect with our past and learn from those who shaped it,” said Todd Barnett, Head of School.

Tickets for the Spirit Walk are $10 for adults and $5 for children. Tickets can be purchased in advance at Green House Coffee in Crozet and Greenberry’s Coffee and Tea in the Barracks Road Shopping, or at the event.

The Field School of Charlottesville is located at 1408 Crozet Avenue, Crozet, VA.

The Field School of Charlottesville is a middle school for boys with the mission to develop well-rounded boys of character and accomplishment.
