Fun for adults and children alike, this 90-minute walking tour of Metro Atlanta's oldest city teaches fascinating facts while sending an exhilarating chill down your spine. Your guide (in full period costume) will titillate the senses with details of recent paranormal investigations and popular legends of ghostly goings-on -- like the night the dead rose up and paraded down Lawrenceville's main thoroughfare. Stroll the haunted streets through historic courthouse square, past turn-of-the-century storefronts and on to the Old Jail, where you can go inside ... if you dare.
While Lawrenceville is the oldest city in the Atlanta metro area, for many years it was a sleepy suburban Southern town. With the growth and development of the metro area, at the turn of the century much of historic downtown was renovated. These renovations awakened the sleeping ghosts and sparked increased reports of paranormal activity.
The Lawrenceville Ghost Tour highlights the most vivid stories of the strange and supernatural as a costumed guide leads guests on a 90-minute adventure through beautiful downtown Lawrenceville. You’ll visit the old jail, see where the corpses flew down Honest Alley and hear other chilling tales will send a shiver down your spine. This tour does not rely on bloody effects or startling patrons like a haunted house, just great stories told by the best storytellers in the region. It’s a popular tour with both children and adults.
The tour distance is approximately one mile.
This is an outdoor walking tour. Please wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather.
