Scary history tours run through October

The Bureau of Historical Investigation is hosting scary tours of Fairhaven and downtown Bellingham on Fridays and Saturdays through October.

The Gore and Lore walking tours visit the sites of Bellingham’s scariest stories. According to the bureau’s website, the tour includes ghosts, ghouls and spine-tingling truths about Bellingham’s oldest tales of hauntings and strange happenings.

“This tour is not for the gentleman faint of heart, or the lady of delicate constitution,” the website says.

Downtown tours meet at 6 p.m. on Saturdays at the bureau’s office at 217 W. Holly St. Fairhaven tours meet at 6 p.m. at the Sycamore Square Indoor Courtyard at 1200 Harris Ave.

The tours are rated R – minors must be accompanied by an adult. Tours cost $15, and palm readings are available at certain tours for an added charge.
