HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Huntsville Ghost Walk is presenting a charity event called "Murder on the Campaign Trail" which will benefit the Historic Huntsville Depot.

Step back in time, as President and Mrs. Woodrow Wilson stop for an unscheduled dinner while on the campaign trail in 1916. Presenters will re-enact this campaign whistlestop, but this time a body is found at the depot while the President is making a speech. The ensuing murder investigation will reveal twists, turns and hidden secrets among the captive dinner guests.

The event will take place Friday, May 27th at 6 p.m. at 320 Church Street, site of the Historic Huntsville Depot. The cost is $35 per person or $200 per table.  All the proceeds will go to help restore the Huntsville Depot in preparations for the bicentennial celebration of Alabama becoming a state. Dinner will be catered by Grille 29, and the menu is based on what would have been served at that time in history.
