The first Ghost Story Tour of Washington was…indoors! Yes, it’s true. It began in 1998 at the Historical Society of Washington’s original site, the Christian Heurich House Museum. It was a big success and eventually spread to other historic houses (Octagon, Decatur House and Sewall-Belmont). By 2000, we added a tour of Lafayette Square as part of the ghostly fun. Here’s a story on an early Ghost Story Tour from Washington City Paper!
Melissa did a snappy job of keeping us entertained! Not sure if we experienced any ghostly activity, but it was fun to think we may have! Recommend this as a way to spend an evening!
We had a great time on this tour – and I think I accidentally learned something, too. I definitely recommend this for Washingtonians looking for something different, or for tourists looking for an off-the-beaten-track sort of thing. This is not super scary, it’s more about true historical stuff – ‘ghosts’ from the past show up to tell their tales of woe. Don’t hesitate to bring the kids!
