Charles Town Ghost Tours offers visitors two guided walking tours ~
- The Traditional Haunted Walk
- The Cemetery Stroll
The Traditional Haunted Walk covers the east side of Charles Town, including a visit to a cemetery, a graveyard, and an unmarked burial ground.
The Cemetery Stroll is an intimate look at the citizens who made Charles Town their home. Cemetery art is also discussed during the walk through a cemetery and a graveyard.
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 the answers to these and more through the Charles Town Ghost Tours. Each tale is a true and documented account taken from historical city records and personal interviews conducted by guide Ann Khiel Fern.
No two tours are ever the same! Hundreds of participants have experienced their own chilling and terrifying moments, many caught on film.
