of Old Wilmington
Join us as we traverse 275-year old alleyways littered with the spiritual debris of privateers and cutthroats. Stroll beneath a canopy of centuries old live oaks, their cryptic limbs dripping with Spanish moss, and hear tales of murder and mayhem. And if you dare, tread upon the unmarked graves of thieves, murderers and other less pitiful souls.
Come hear the dismal accounts behind our most unfortunate wretches and discover the poor lost souls that still linger in the Port City. Hear tales past and present, including the most recent encounters with these spirits (many of which have occurred during past tours).
We have been researching the ghosts of downtown Wilmington since 1978. With 30 active sites the tour varies nightly. So join us on a family safe, 90-minute journey you will not soon forget.
