Tell Me About It Tours
A jack of all trades, Rob Craighurst has worked many jobs including computer programmer, dance caller, property manager, and hammer-dulcimer maker. Now, he uses the local knowledge he gained living in the area for 40 years to lead ghost tours of the scariest sites in town. Tours cover one mile of horrific haunts such as the home of former Charlottesville mayor Sam McClue, where a gruesome murder took place in 1904. Tours can also celebrate birthdays with a bit of mystery, either trying to solve that turn-of-the-century murder or by building-hopping through the city's past. For a change of pace, private tours give visitors a glimpse of historic Charlottesville through deeper looks at Jefferson's Monticello and the University of Virginia, James Monroe's home, and a restored tavern from 1784 that provided 18th-century travelers with food, lodging, and GPS directions.
