What might make a city haunted?

While Columbus has a rich and vibrant history, there is also a dark side to our past. In this 2. 5-hour*, walking tour, we'll visit a number of fantastic locations through the Short North, Arena District, and Downtown. Each location has its own tale and experience. From a cold winter murder to a hot prison fire to secret tunnels under the city, Columbus is full of haunted tales.

This tour gives you a chance to learn and experience these stories over a drink during our several stops.

This is not a ghost hunting tour, but is a chance to explore Columbus' haunted past. We'll have a great time walking and sharing stories. Join me on one of the listed dates or contact me for a customized, private tour.
