My most popular tour route is a Raleigh ghost tour!
Get ready to uncover the dark secrets and ghostly tales that lurk within the city of Raleigh's historic streets! I will lead you to some of the most haunted places in Raleigh, including the Governor's Mansion and the State Capitol Building. You will hear stories of paranormal encounters and unexplained phenomena. Brace yourself for a chilling journey into the unknown!
This walking tour is not your typical “ghost tour” with special effects, and we will not be looking for ghosts. Instead, it is a history tour that discusses some real hauntings resulting from past events.
If this sounds appealing to you, please sign up for a tour through Eventbrite here. I would love to meet you!
The Raleigh Haunted History tour begins outside the Governor's Mansion (N.C. Executive Mansion), 200 N. Blount St., on the corner of Blount and Jones Sts., outside the barricade. However, this is a walking tour -- it is not a tour of the Governor's Mansion! It ends at the Legislative Building, 16 W. Jones St., a block and a half away from the starting point.
The ghost tours are approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes long, but may be slightly longer depending on the size and speed of the group. There will not be any restroom breaks or stops for food/drinks. In addition, we will not be entering any of the buildings that we stop at on the tour.
Finally, please note that the vast majority of the tour should be fine for children of all ages. But sensitive children could possibly be frightened by any of the ghost stories. In addition, the very last story that I tell involves a murder and has some fairly graphic/gory parts to it. Even though the story is actually not a true story, I feel like it could be disturbing for younger children. When children are on the tour, I do emphasize that the story is a made up, Raleigh folklore story. I hope this helps when you are deciding whether to bring children on the tour.
I hope to see you on a tour sometime soon! You can sign up for the tour below!
