Lisa Swickard - Ghosts of Tiffin: History and the Paranormal

Lisa Swickard is an award-winning author/historian/journalist and paranormal investigator. With 10 books to her credit, Swickard specializes in "fascinating history you didn't learn in school." She founded the ghost walks in 2015 and narrates each of the tours. The paranormal is nothing new to her; it has been a part of her family for five generations. "The ghost walks are the ultimate mix of the two things I love, and we have a great time. In some ways, in these walks we are keeping alive the people who lived here a long time ago and may have otherwise slipped into obscurity. I think they know that and that's why they come to visit us week after week." a great time.
