The Birmingham Ghost Walk

Birmingham

The Birmingham Ghost Walk is our signature tour and is the one that started it all for us. So much dark and interesting tidbits, along with tales of intrigue and woe, are contained within the pages of our history. For 2018 there will be two different tours just to tell it all! You do not have to go on the tours in a specific order! Take the second one first if you want! It is a completely different set of tales of dark history! These evening, lantern lit tours cover all of the dark and interesting history that began right with the founding of our “city in the midst of the wilderness” and continue right through the Civil Rights Era of the 1960’s (although most of the tales pre-date The Great War). Come. Grab a bit of shadowy darkness…and walk with us.
