About This Tour

America’s Oldest Haunt

Prepare yourself for a Frightseeing Adventure like none other as your resident Ghost Host shares tales both true and truly unnerving of the city’s tumultuous past. Discover the secrets of the Tolomoto Cemetery and the apparition seen playing on the sacred grounds after dark. Could it be the spirit of five-year old James or is it the Ghost Bride, still waiting for her walk down the aisle. Be sure to keep a watchful eye while passing by the old City Gates. You might catch a glimpse of Elizabeth, a child victim of the yellow fever, waving to passersby. And face your fears in the exclusive nighttime experience at Potter’s Wax Museum’s Chamber of Horrors… Plan to arrive at least 20 minutes early to make time to visit Cromwell’s Parlour of Paranormal Curiosities.
