Lantern Tours of the Ghosts of Zoar are now accepting reservations for the fall season, which will run through Oct. 29.

Lantern Tours cover the history of the historic village of Zoar, Ohio, which was first settled by German Separatists in 1817, and includes tales of the resident spirits who never left the historic village.

Tales of these haunted places have also been compiled in the book, "The Ghosts of Zoar, Ohio," which is available at area book stores. These ghost stories have even caught the eye of Hollywood, and Producer Greg James plans to incorporate the stories in an independent film entitled "ZOAR."

Lantern Tours take place Friday and Saturday evenings by advance reservation only. Tours begin on the steps of the historic Zoar Hotel, at 187 Main Street in Zoar. Group tours can also be arranged for other dates and times.

Advance reservations are required and can be made by calling 330-874-2002, or visiting
