Stories of murder and mayhem spice up our ghost tours.  Our lantern-led, 2-hour long, all-outdoor walks have between 13 and 18 stops.  Historical photographs bring the people and places to life.  Our stories don't skim the surface. We delve into the history behind the events and through deep research correct some of the mistakes told in the past.  At tours end you receive a list of our sources for your own sleuthing.  We leave the cheese and costumes to the other tours and suggest you leave your little ones with a sitter as the subject matter may be too graphic for those under the age of 10.   Each neighborhood has it's own flavor based on its evolution.
