Our Tour Guide was dressed in 1800's attire she had many great stories to tell about the history of the jail. There were no lights on as this is a ghost tour and just the "no lights" upped the scare factor greatly! My husband and...More

Thanks Sandra, I will pass your comments along to the guides. You are right we don't give to much history on these tours, that's what our ghost tours are for. But if you have specific questions, please don't hesitate to ask

"Ok" maybe it's because I'm getting old ( the grumpy old man old) but having someone running around talking to GHOSTS like they're naughty children, or asking a 100 year old spirits to set off a EMF, or an electrotrymogulator or whatever they were, I...More

The Ghost Tour was so much fun! The guide was so informative & had you from the moment she opened the door. Reasonably priced as well I thought! Definitely got the heart racing - which was great! A must do for history buffs.
