Oklahoma storyteller Marilyn A. Hudson, aka "The Ghost Teller", gazes at the historic 1903 Oklahoma City Overholser Mansion (NW 15th and Hudson).
The 2nd Annual fund raising "Spooky Stories & Twilight Tour" concluded Friday night after three evenings of entertainment and historic tours. Approximately ninety people, many first time visitors, were introduced to the mansion and its history after enjoying tales from "The Ghost Teller."
"Marvelous!", "That was awesome!" "Well done!" "I've got chills!" were heard after each performance as storyteller Hudson, donning a slight Victorian-Steampunk attire, shared two sessions of tales each night perched on an antique chair in the carriage house. Sometimes the aura of spookiness continued as they would tour the mansion some repute it is itself haunted by previous occupants.
"Well, I just think she is lovely!" Hudson said with a laugh when this was mentioned to her. "That may be because I am already haunted - by history."
