Queen City is Haunted Tour
Most cities take pride in their past, preserving their historic triumphs and unusual claims to fame. The more macabre facets of municipal history, however, can take some digging to uncover. American Legacy Tours' Queen City is Haunted walking tours take the work out of supernatural explorations of Cincinnati. During each walk, expert guides expound on the murders and deaths of yesteryear, taking their charges through haunted buildings, spooky burial grounds, and the spot where they finally buried their dream of dancing. Historical episodes of interest include Cincinnati's Murder College, the phantoms that infest Music Hall, and the tale of the Tri-State area's most prolific killer.
American Legacy Tours
Initially designed as a temporary tour and fundraiser for student travel, American Legacy Tours began humbly as the Newport Gangster Tour in 2008. When met with overwhelming success, the friends who had embarked on what they thought was a temporary project decided to take root and expand, creating American Legacy Tours in 2010.
Their first order of business as an official company was to introduce the Queen City Underground Tour, an exploration of the city's underground tunnels and history as a rabbit village. Today, a cadre of educated guides leads 10 different area walking tours, including Civil War in Cincinnati and Newport is Haunted, one of several ghost-themed tours held around Halloween. There are also art-focused excursions, such as the Rookwood Pottery Factory tour.
