The 2016 season is upon us and this year we are adding a broad collection of daytime historic tours! Churches, the historic city center, a civil rights tour, theaters both here and past, an architecture tour...and of course, in the evenings the ever popular Birmingham Ghost Walk! The historic tours are themed by month and the Ghost Walk will continue to be a broad look at all the dark and hidden history of downtown.

Our family had a fantastic time on the ghost tour of Birmingham on Dec. 27th. Wolfgang Poe was very knowledgeable and extremely entertaining. We loved the laid back atmosphere and time together. My mom recently had knee surgery and she was able walk the mile walk since it was over a 2.5 hour time span. We will definitely do this... More
