The Ghost Tours of West Chester is the popular walking tour with tales of ghosts, folklore and history. Your guide, dressed as a gentleman from the 1850’s, will lead you on a 90-minute walk through the spooky lanes of downtown neighborhoods where you will explore the place of the shadow people, learn of lost souls of the underground railroad, and stand where the gallows once stood and murderers were hanged. New stories of phantoms, apparitions and witches are added. This event is perfect for the entire family.
