The RaconTour Dark History Tour is a one-hour storytelling adventure through the dark history of Charlotte. Topics include:
The Crime of the Century

The Bodysnatching Business in Charlotte
I start from the southwest corner of Trade and Tryon (the corner with the clock) and proceed west, then north, then east back to Tryon over about 5 blocks. This tour takes about 1-1.5 hours.
