Truckee's Historical Haunted Tour began as a three-year experiment to celebrate historic gems while raising funds for worthy causes. The event quickly became a sensation, selling out and attracting a waitlist list every year since inception. The Tour has raised more than $31,000 since 2009. This year's event will feature a treasure-packed raffle that celebrates unique work by Truckee-based artisans and travel packages featuring lodging and dining. The Tour takes creative license to haunt, embellish and entertain. Visit www.truckeehistorytour.org.
