Description

Discover the secrets and supernatural mysteries that can be found around every corner of Old Town Alexandria, a district with nearly 3 centuries of spine-chilling history. Experience spooky stories and unexplained events as you visit the most haunted locations in the area—and perhaps have a sighting of your own.

Meet your guide in the gardens of the Ramsay House Visitors Center, itself a site of reported hauntings. Learn of the home's original owner, William Ramsay, a founder of the city who's said to make appearances in the darkness of the basement.

From here, follow your guide—dressed in 18th-century clothing and carrying a lantern to light the way—down quaint cobblestone sidewalks. You soon reach Gadsby's Tavern, formerly the City Hotel. Hear the story of the ill woman and her husband who rented a room back in 1816 and turned to doctors for help. Before she died, the woman made everyone present take an oath that they would never reveal her identity.

Continue on down dimly lit streets toward 2 historic houses haunted by numerous spirits, including Revolutionary War soldiers and a mother and child who appear on the stairs. Your tour concludes with a visit to St. Paul's Cemetery, the very place where the Female Stranger is buried. Read the melancholy love letter inscribed on the tomb, and keep your eyes peeled for ghosts meandering the grounds.
