Updated COVID-19 Requirements ~
At Charles Town Ghost Tours, our main concern is to keep everyone “Safely Scared!”
– Mask requirements ~ I have lifted the mask requirements. Masks are now optional on any tour.
– Groups will be kept at 50% capacity for a haunting but healthy experience.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!

Welcome to Charles Town, West Virginia – founded in the late 1700s by Charles Washington, youngest brother of President George Washington.

A very old town – and very haunted!

Why do the spirits of children still play in the cemetery? Why does Mary Turner Allibone still sob late at night? What ghost train still runs through Charles Town?

Find out when you join Ann Fern as she takes you through the darkened streets of Charles Town and tells tales of the town’s history, as well as its hauntings.

We offer four tours ~

  • Charles Town History Tour – Day
  • Victorian Grave Art Tour – Day
  • The Traditional Haunted Walk – Evening
  • The Cemetery Stroll – Evening
