What we will provide
From the West End we will walk to Dealey Plaza, the site of JFK assassination as we reflect on the fateful day of November 22nd, 1963 and talk about why this place has evolved to become a dark tourism destination. We will visit the restless spirits of the Old Red Courthouse and Hotel Lawrence (both hot spots for paranormal activity). Further down our journey we will walk on the grounds of the old cemetery at Pioneer Park (a conglomeration of four graveyards with the remains of several of the city’s earliest founders). To reach our last stop in the in Oak Cliff neighborhood we will take the streetcar, to the infamous Oswald Rooming House, the location where JFK “alleged assassin” was living at the time of the president’s murder.
