From scary ghost stories to true crime tales, Bob Antone’s Haunting Walking Tours are guaranteed to send chills up your spine. The North Bend musician, wood carver and artist expertly blends local history and lore with tales of the netherworld, designed to appeal to the “morbidly curious,” as he likes to say.
But for Bob, the events are just as much about rekindling the old-fashioned art of storytelling, which he grew up with, listening to grandparents, aunts, uncles and neighbors who shared family histories and stories with each other. “These stories and others like them are oral histories that you can’t find on the internet,” he says. “It’s like what we did sitting around the campfire.”
